I'll assume your answer means all pages in:
(2005.* UNION 2006.*) MINUS *.GroupHeader MINUS *.HomePage
...because even your wording was ambiguous, it could very
well have been interpreted as, all pages in:
2005.* UNION (2006.* MINUS *.GroupHeader MINUS *.HomePage)
...I know, I know, I'm being picky.
So then it becomes impossible to create ceratin exact sets.
I was hoping I could get it to instead mean:
(2005.* MINUS *.GroupHeader) UNION (2006.* MINUS *.HomePage)
I don't see a way for someone to define something like that?
