An example of KeptPages. Say we are editing a page that was last edited in 1997, with an expiry timespan of one week:

Before

SamplePage
This is content from 1997.

Revision history.
empty.

After edit 1 at 3:43pm March 21, 2001

SamplePage

Revision history.
[3:43pm March 21, 2001] This is content from 1997.

Revision history.
[1:42am March 23, 2001] This is content from March 21, 2001.

Revision history.
[7:02pm March 29, 2001] This is content from March 23, 2001.
[1:42am March 23, 2001] This is content from March 21, 2001.

Note that "This is content from 1997." has now expired.

Assuming no more edits, after 7:02pm, April 5, 2001

SamplePage
This is content from March 29, 2001.

Revision history.
empty.


In practice, it's best to leave at least one version behind for purposes of diffs, so at the end, we will have:

SamplePage
This is content from March 29, 2001.

Revision history.
[7:02pm March 29, 2001] This is content from March 23, 2001.
