Hi,

the starting set is always "ALL", which is defined by href and depth.

1) res = all
2) res = all AND NOT excluded
3) res = all AND included
4) res = all AND included AND NOT excluded

Does this make it clear? Any suggestion to add it to the the proposal?

Regards,
Martin

Martin,

I still have a hard time figuring out what it means to have both child 
elements. You write:

	DAV:include-lastpathsegment: All resources are included when
omitted.

and

	DAV:exclude-lastpathsegment: No resources are excluded when omitted.

so what is the base set when both are present?

Given:

all: all resources in scope
exc: resources matching exclude patterns
inc: resources matching include patterns

What is the result set in the following four cases:

1) no includes, no excludes
2) just excludes
3) just includes
4) both

?

My understanding:

1) res = all
2) res = all - exc
3) res = inc

but what is the answer for 4?


Regards, Julian
