Subject Aggregation
Date Mon, 12 May 2008 21:02:59 GMT
To whom it may concern,

The wikipedia article about CouchDB says "Aggregate
functions<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aggregate_function>and
filters <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filter_%28software%29> are computed in
parallel as in MapReduce <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MapReduce>, rather
than at query time (although queries may introduce new aggregate functions,
which execute on the existing documents in parallel)."  Specifically what
kind of aggregations is this referring to if it is accurate at all.

Thanks,
Andrew
