Coming out of a breakout session at the #openedtools meeting this week, I’d like to start (continue?) the discussion about useful version control between copies of books, both inside and outside a single instance of Pressbooks.
Use case: The U of Hawaii system has a [master] copy of a textbook in Pressbooks. We give multiple instructors their own copy of it to make modifications, updates, and to extend it with other tools. At the end of the semester, we want to compare the changes made between copies of the book as to capture the changes that would benefit most folks and roll them back into the [master] version.
How could this work between books in the same Pressbooks instance? Could this work between copies of the same book on entirely different Pressbooks networks? Is there a way to “listen” for changes in copies of your book elsewhere?
