Re: The ability to schedule changes

Sorry I havn't answered till now - I have had a busy weekend :-)

Thanks for your suggestion.

I think it solves my problem, with the addition of an "end"-date (in effect scheduling the removal
of the document).

I am thinking of using web-dav as a layer when serving the document. Is it possible to read the
properties through web-dav without retrieving the document and without using an svn client? Where
would I look to see a description of this?
