Subject Re: non versioned attributes on versioned nodes?
Date Sat, 16 Feb 2008 18:01:10 GMT
Thank you, that worked fine.

One question of curiosity is, when you walk a VersionHistory and get a 
version. The properties set (when done between checkin and checkout ops) for 
a node, don't actually live on the version object but on a child of the 
version. It appears in my testing that there is only one child of a version 
History, even tho it is accessed thru iterator. Am I correct in 
understanding that there is only going to be one child of the Version object 
(under normal checkin/checkout) usage?
