Partition Phase

A looseleaf partition contains data in a number of phases, as described in Looseleaf Publishing in the User Guide. Some API calls allow you to specify which phase to use, by passing one of the following strings:

INITIAL

The mainwork (initial) phase.

PUBLISH

The phase most recently committed for publishing.

UPDATE

The phase currently being edited.

CURRENT

The phase currently being worked on. This is equivalent to INITIAL if the partition has never been published.
