Subject Re: What priority for purge filter
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 17:25:55 GMT
In the event that the value could change (by having a new version of the
value written) in the column used to determine whether or not to keep the
row, the purge iterator should be applied after the VersioningIterator.
This means it should be given a larger priority.
