I'm trying to use ItemSetField to assign roles to relationships between books and authors (e.g. illustrator, editor) and not having much luck with it.

I keep stumbling onto various cryptic error messages.

Does anyone know if there's better documentation and/or a few examples of how it's used somewhere? I'm only finding the one at github and one where someone used it to assign votes to players' work on teams.

I never could get ItemSetField to work properly, and ended up removing it and assigning roles directly in MySQL. Luckily that's something I've needed for only about 2% of the records in that table, but still--you'd think something like this would actually be in core in SilverStripe. It can't be that uncommon.

If you post information about your problems I'd be happy to have a look.
