sequence empty for baseline items that are not current

    Hi,

    When I try to run a context sensitive velocity report from a baseline, I'm finding some curious behavior. If the item version in the baseline is the same as the current one, the "sequence" property returns the heading as expected (e.g. "2.4.3" ), but if the version in the baseline is an older version, the "sequence" property fails and you get something like $vdoc.sequence (if you don't suppress failures).

    I did a bit of testing on with the REST API, and it appears that the original sequence value is saved with the baseline (good!) and appears in the return body under "baselineLocation" -> "sequence" if you use the ".../baselines/{id}/versioneditems/{itemid}" endpoint (it does not appear in the ".../items/{id}/versions/{version}/versioneditem" endpoint). The REST API is not the preferred method for this particular report, but does confirm that the desired data exist.

    How can I get the versioned sequence information when exporting from a baseline context?

    Thanks,
