        <contents.preview rel="thumb" type="{mimetype}" maxwidth="{int}" maxheight="{int}" href="{uri}" />

        <user.createdby id="{int}" href="{uri}">
        <revisions count="{int}" href="{uri}" /> 

Implementation Notes

The contents.preview element only exists if a file preview is available. Preview generation requires the file to be an image and fall within a certain size.

Files in the archive are not included in the output.
