I believe I discovered a couple discrepancies in the findStems documentation, in the docs the first part of the findStems entry says the following is the signature:
public static WsFindStemsResults findStems(GrouperVersion clientVersion,
                                           WsStemQueryFilter wsStemQueryFilter,
                                           WsSubjectLookup actAsSubjectLookup,
                                           WsParam[] params,
                                           WsStemLookup[] wsStemLookups)

However, down below the params are documented as follows:

clientVersion - is the version of the client. Must be in GrouperWsVersion, e.g. v1_3_000
wsStemQueryFilter - is the filter properties that can search by name, uuid, approximate attribute, and can do group math on multiple operations, etc
includeStemDetail - T or F as to if the stem detail should be included (defaults to F)
actAsSubjectLookup -
params - optional: reserved for future use
wsStemLookups - to pass in a list of uuids or names to lookup. Note the stems are returned in alphabetical order

First, WsSubjectLookup isn’t documented in the parameters section, I’m assuming it works the same as in other methods? Is it WsSubject or WsSubject[]?

Also, includeStemDetail is described in the parameters area but not in the above method signature, is that parameter actually implemented in the web service?
