The current process is:
- Save a snapshot (with a distinctive name/description)
- Open History window
- Wait for the just-saved snapshot to appear at the top of the History window. For a large app, this can be 15 seconds or more. More than enough opportunity to get called away to work on some other problem.
- Click the snapshot’s “Publish” link.
It’d be a lot less effort (and nearly invulnerable to interruption) to just check a “Publish” checkbox on the name-entry window, and be done with it.
Nearly done. I still have to tell testers when the Publish has gone through (so that they can refresh their browsers), so I’d need some visual feedback when it had completed.
