Hi everybody. I have a question about this particular query hack that I have been using for quite a while. This is something of an advance esoteric query.
This is the hack I use within my exceptions.
When I use it with the following,
(task//@tag_name/ancestor::* union @tag_name///*)
It removes the projects from the results that have projects that only have tasks with that particular tag. For example in the following example,
task except (task//@private/ancestor::* union @private///*) using the following file
First project: - One - Two - Three Second project: @private - One - Two - Three Third project: - One - Two @private - Three Fourth project: - One @private - Two @private - Three @private
This is the result I get
First project: - One - Two - Three Third project: - One - Three
Can someone explain why? I would like to know because I have a script that uses
evaluateItemPath and that hack doesn’t work there.
For extra points, is there a query using
evaluateItemPath that returns the same results?
