    An edit history with times of the last edits would be nice ..

Ideally the edit is labeleld with the time, complete with time zone, since not all of us are in the Eastern Time Zone. :)

    Ideally ...

    Ideally the monk doesn't have to do anything to get a timestamp inserted

    You can achieve that by typing something like [localtime://2012-10-16T11:52:14UTC] to the node, which will get formatted in the timezone of the reader, eg: Oct 16, 2012 at 11:52 UTC. Don't forget the UTC part or else the time is parsed as server time.

    Here's a script to generate such a string.

    perl -we 'use Date::Manip::Date; $d = Date::Manip::Date->new("now"); $ +d->convert("UTC"); print $d->printf("[localtime://%OUTC]\n");'

    Btw, I don't usually give times like that in update notices, because I mark the update only up to a day of precision, or with no timestamp at all if I update soon after posting.
