  • True(save edits)—the session's collection of edits are trimmed into a single moment and the version is updated to reference this moment. The exclusive lock is downgraded to a shared lock.
  • False(discard)—the session discards the collection of edits, and all apply edits are removed. The version continues to reference the same moment and the exclusive lock is downgraded to a shared lock.
