Subject Re: Getting VersionHistory after removing of a Node

hi cedric,

true.. we even had discussion in the expert group around the feature 
of removing versions. it seems that the removal of version 
histories and versions is more of administrational cleanup process in the
repository than something that an application should have to worry about.
but i think i can see your point and if we shoose to extend jcr into the
repository administration realm this may certainly be a relevant addition.

what would you like use to identify the "deleted node"? uuid? path? path
& workspace? path & workspace & date? other properties?
currently we assumed the uuid (or other properties) as the identifier, but 
i think there is a bit of a grey area there, so i would be interested to hear 
your usecase.
