It should keep all versions intact. Read more in 'man co' and 'man ci'.
Gramps interface allows you retrieving the last version, but you
can also retrieve any version manually from the ,v file, either
manually with ci and co or by using any of the available version
control GUI tools.

Sorry, I was not careful and missed the fact that it was Custom Command.

Custom command should me something like:
cat > filename; do_something_on_the_filename filename
where filename is something you choose, and do_something_on_the_filename
is whatever program you want to run on it. You can use any version
control system or just copy the file elsewhere, it's up to you.
Without the command, the XML output is piped into the empty pipe,
hence the same message. I suppose we could catch this and prevent
gramps from doing anything if command field is empty. I assume it
is empty, or did you put something in?
