Subject Re: What priority for purge filter
Date Mon, 09 Dec 2013 18:04:28 GMT
If you want your filter to make decisions based on older versions, do
it before (lower than 20). If you want it to make decisions based on
the current version(s), do it after (higher than 20). I think that's
what Billie was saying.
