This plugin allows for automated scheduled database optimization of WordPress site. The user can specify (in days) how long in between automated optimizations.

Revision Control is a plugin for WordPress that gives the user more control over the Revision functionality. The plugin allows the user to set a site-global setting (Settings -> Revisions) for pages/posts to enable/disable/limit the number of revisions which are saved for the page/post. The user may change this setting on a per-page/post basis from the Revisions Meta box. The plugin also allows the deletion of specific revisions via the Revisions post metabox.
