Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-67) Allow periods (".") in database names
Date Sun, 03 Aug 2008 13:09:44 GMT


Jan Lehnardt commented on COUCHDB-67:

Heya Travis, that's great news. The restriction to safe names comes from Damien (I just relayed
the info) and he's used to writing code for all sorts of obscure platforms. the question here
is if we are okay with "just" the major three or do we want more and does the mean that we
need to be more careful and put some more research into obsucre FS issues? :)

I'd say that they are okay, but I am far from a platform expert.

More input appreciated.

> Allow periods in database names. We need to find out if a period is among the "safe"
characters that can be used for filenames on most filesystems.
