> Attached is the latest WebDAV versioning model. This model does not
> distinguish between Document Management Systems (DMS) and Configuration
> Management Systems (CM), but rather attempts to integrate the semantics of
> both while remaining as simple as possible. It attempts to provide the
> flexibility and ease of use of DMS systems while retaining the rich
> semantics available in modern CM systems and lets the user choose which
> semantics to use on a revision by revision basis. The model was driven by
> the scenarios in the Versioning Goals document, so you may want to review
> that document in parallel with the model.
