The following terms are specific to this document:

camel-cased: The capitalization style applied to compound words or phrases when they are joined without spaces and the first letter of each word, except the first word, is capitalized within the compound. For example, displayName is camel-cased.

conflict detection: A process that is used to determine whether two versions of the same object conflict with each other, that is, one is not a direct or indirect predecessor of another.

conflict handling: One or more actions that are taken upon detection of a conflict between versions of the same object. These actions include conflict reporting and conflict resolution.

conflict reporting: An automated process that notifies a system actor of a previously detected conflict.

conflict resolution: An automated or semi-automated process that is used to resolve a previously detected conflict between versions of an object. The process replaces conflicting versions with a successor version. How a successor version relates to a conflicting version depends on the algorithm that is used.

deleted item list: An abstract repository of information about deleted items.

expired Message object: A Message object that was removed by a server due to the age of the Message object.

partial completion: The outcome of a complex operation with independent steps, where some steps succeeded and some steps failed.

Pascal-cased: The capitalization style applied to compound words or phrases when they are joined without spaces and the first letter of each word (including the first word) is capitalized within the compound. For example, DisplayName is a pascal-cased.

property list restriction table: A set of restrictions, expressed in tabular form, that is imposed on an array of properties and the values of those properties.

synchronization type: The type of synchronization that is occurring, either a hierarchy synchronization or a content synchronization.

MAY, SHOULD, MUST, SHOULD NOT, MUST NOT: These terms (in all caps) are used as defined in [RFC2119]. All statements of optional behavior use either MAY, SHOULD, or SHOULD NOT.
