[opensuse-buildservice] RFC: changes in request history


I do currently work on a re-implementation of the history logging of requests.
Mainly to tackle the following things:

* Currently history entries happen only on state changes, but not on other
actions, like added or modified reviews, or changed (upcomming) priority

* review state changes have no history at all yet

* Last but not least, the new history system should be also usable with
like project or package objects.

However, I do currently plan some changes in the request xml layout due to this:
An old entry looked like this:

<history name="new" who="adrian" when="...">

The "name" attribute does not make sense always, since no all actions are
state changes. Therefore I do plan to replace it with a <description> element
instead. This will always contain some readable, but automatic generated text
describing the action of the user. For example:

<history who="adrian" when="...">
<description>Request got superseded by request 42</description>
<comment>I do it always better in my second approach</comment>

The <comment> element will become optional, but continues to contain any user

Also the review elements will get history elements in this style.

Do you have any opinions about this change?
