#1 Checking that we are not editing a revision

This is an example from the WordPress function add_post_meta() code. Where before adding metadata to a post, it checks if the post is not a revision:

function add_post_meta( $post_id, $meta_key, $meta_value, $unique = false ) {

	// make sure that the current post is not a revision.
	if ( $the_post = wp_is_post_revision( $post_id ) ) {
		$post_id = $the_post;
	}

	return add_metadata( 'post', $post_id, $meta_key, $meta_value, $unique );
}
