      Description

      Section 8.1 of the REST API Guidelines specifies a 'select' parameter that is used to filter out properties from response JSON documents. However the current Public API uses the parameter name 'properties' for this purpose. The v1 APIs need to add the parameter 'select' as a synonym (functionally equivalent version) of 'properties', and the documentation updated to indicate that 'select' is the preferred name going forward.

      From pg. 17 in the Alfresco API documentation:

      Filtering properties
      You may only be interested in a subset of properties in a returned entity. You can use the
      properties parameter to restrict the returned properties.
      The properties parameter is a comma-separated list of property names:-
      property=property1,property2...
