This specification defines Atom link relations for navigation between a resource and its versions.
Please send comments to the Atom Syntax mailing list (<http://www.imc.org/atom-syntax/>).
This specification defines link relations that may be used on a resource that exists in a system that supports versioning to navigate among the different resources available, such as past versions.
The terms below are borrowed from the Versioning Extensions to WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning) ([RFC3253]).
Version-Controlled Resource, Checked-Out
Version History Resource
Predecessor, Successor, Ancestor, Descendant
Root Version Resource
Automated agents should take care when these relation crosses administrative domains (e.g., the URI has a different authority than the current document).
All link relations defined in this document will have the following expected display characteristics:
|[RFC4287]||Nottingham, M. and R. Sayre, “The Atom Syndication Format”, RFC 4287, December 2005.|
|[RFC3253]||Clemm, G., Amsden, J., Ellison, T., Kaler, C., and J. Whitehead, “Versioning Extensions to WebDAV (Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning)”, RFC 3253, March 2002.|

[rfc.comment.2: To Be Done: describe how versioning properties in JCR and in WebDAV/DeltaV map to the newly defined link relations.]
