Documentation : Atmostonce Semantics
This is from page 14 of the documentation.
Shouldn't it be the other way around.
An idempotent operation is an operation that , if executed any number of times has the same effects/results.
Btw, if i have some stuff like this, should this be posted under bugs or under comments/suggestions.
thanks,

An idempotent operation is an operation that, if executed twice, has different effects than if executed once.

Hmmm... I think that's exactly what the descriptions says. It doesn't matter whether you execute the operation once, twice, or n times  the outcome is always the same, as long as the operation is executed at least once.
So, I think your description and mine say exactly the same thing.Btw, if i have some stuff like this, should this be posted under bugs or under comments/suggestions.
Depends on whether it's a bug or a suggestion If in doubt, use bugs.

Umm, Michi, if the original quote is correct (and I don't have the doco
open at the moment) then your descriptions are exactly opposite.0

Oops, how terribly embarrassing... Dense as I am, I finally got it: the book says "different" when it should say "the same". I'll fix that for the next version.
So, rest assured, "Bug Reports" is indeed the correct forum to report this ;)

Now, Bruce, congratulations, that's a very diplomatic way of pointing out that I'm up shit creek
Rely on Bruce to rub it in...
