Yves, the issue has been forwarded to https://gna.org/task/?4226 where we proposed a doable solution.

Unfortunately, to prevent this we should register the exact status of the item somewhere each time someone create a form, to be able to crosscheck afterwards what was really changed and what has not changed.

Otherwise, we have no way to determine that a value in the form should not override the one in the database (None is valid value too).

In fact, it would mean implementing a versioned approach of item history.

The overhead to avoid this problem seems gigantic to me. How often this happen and how problematic it is?

If two people are using Savannah at the same time, all the settings of the old user are overwritten, e.g. user_1 and user_2 both start to edit bug information at the same time.

If a user_1 fills out fields "Configuration Changes" with "Must be done" and submits the changes the field is set. As user_2 still has the old values when submitting, e.g. an empty field, once he submits, the values are set back to "empty".

It should be checked if the current version is the latest one (like CVS does).

Example: Patch 899 glite middleware.
