Subject Re: change username
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2013 11:35:53 GMT
Sorry I was a bit unclear. It's the username used for
repository.login() i need to change, so not the uuid. This is the
rep:principalName property?

Is the rep:principalName used verbatim in ACLs etc? or is the rep:User
nodes' uuid used?
