German term or phrase: Entversionieren
I know what versioning is (= assigning files etc. a version number), but what's the opposite? Is it "unversioning" or "deversioning"? Google seems to suggest the latter (800 vs. 100), though the hits are rather strange.

Any computer geeks out there?

Context: "Um eine Datei zu entversionieren, wählen Sie 'Versionieren'/ 'Entversionieren'."

Explanation:
...I'd say based on the source below. I'm unable to reproduce your Google hits, though (me: deversioning 0, unversioning 8).

Well, Jan, the source was not a request per se but rather an answer to it.

Thanks, Steffen!

Although I am reluctant to rely on a *request* posted on a *bulletin board* (your ref.), I did finally find credible confirmation under http://www.ietf.org/proceedings/00jul/I-D/deltav-versioning-06.txt

(Incidentally: My Google hits were generated by searching for "deversion" and "unversion" rather than "deversioning" and "unversioning")
