Hi Noli

Of course it is possible to manage more than 2 revisions. On my website
its only an example. In the moment the revisions are depending on the
user who edits the data. You can define as many users as you want. As I
understood right you can solve your problem with introducing several new
users for the different periods.

I hope that helps.
