The "Next Planned Revision"

 

Values

The next planned revision at the bottom of my pages have these values (see below for explanation):

What dates should be attached to a web page?

Immediately come to mind:

  1. the date of creation
  2. the date of last modification

When you see a page with a last-modified date that is a year in the past, does that mean the content is now out of date?  When the last-modified date is yesterday, does that mean the content is very new?

What is also needed is some sort of status indicating the speed at which the content of a page evolves.

As a first approximation of that concept I have added to my pages a "next planned revision" date.  It can have these values:

A page that has not been modified in years but has a next planned revision of "never" still has relevant content, it's just that there is nothing new about it.
