class ncclient.capabilities.Capabilities(capabilities)

":cap" in caps

Check for the presence of capability. In addition to the URI, for capabilities of the form urn:ietf:params:netconf:capability:$name:$version their shorthand can be used as a key. For example, for urn:ietf:params:netconf:capability:candidate:1.0 the shorthand would be :candidate. If version is significant, use :candidate:1.0 as key.
