Subject Re: How to find the change sequence of a document's revision
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 21:02:48 GMT
While it won't appear in the changes feed, they do track the
update_seq they originally had IIRC. I sure don't think we surface
that anywhere.

Ciprian, is there a specific need for this or is this for something
app specific?
