Would it be possible to implement some versioning for the Files and Documents. Sometimes one might want to keep versions of a particular document without checking it into subversion or CVS e.g Statement of Work

Just an idea: Use git to version the files, and make a branch from an empty repository for each issue/document. Perform the versioning of the added documents in the specific branch. This way it would be possible to pull the documents into the repository as submodules.

Adding to Jone's comment, perhaps some changes to the SCM adapters would be needed (and it would only be enabled when a repository is configured).

Very useful, we tend to create some visio documents/files.
Because we only want source code & related files in the file repository, we tend not to version those documents.

Would be very nice if you could integrate "versionable" documents, simple versioning would suffice

Could this be handled also this way: If there multiple documents with the same filename, only the newest one will be shown and the rest can be accessed for example collapsing ("+") icon beside it or something like that. But it would be nice if the document timestamp contained also seconds.

Any activity on this by anyone? Any patches for example?
