 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    node system
 Category:     bug reports
 Priority:     normal
 Assigned to:  Anonymous
 Reported by:  killes at www.drop.org

 Status:       patch (code needs review)
 Attachment:   http://drupal.org/files/issues/node_rev.patch (1.27 KB)

With or without the revisions patch, every user who can access content
can access old revisions. I think this is a bug because why would you
need to see old revisions if you cannot change them or make them the
current revision?

The attached patch fixes this and lets only users with "administer
nodes" permission see old revs as you need this permission to change
revisiosn to be the current one.

One might make a case for introducing new "view revisions" and "set
revisions" perms. You woud need those if you wanted to mimic a wiki
with Drupal.
