Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-217) Store Revision of Attachments
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2009 08:44:59 GMT
Store Revision of Attachments

                 Key: COUCHDB-217
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Sven Helmberger

I'm writing some multi-app hosting thing and besides using couchdb as database it also stores
all images and stylesheets and scripts etc for the applications as attachments. I have one
couchdb database per app and
store all resources on a single document to keep the same relative hierarchical structure
I have in my apps.

I can now fetch that document and use it to quickly find out the name, lenght and content-type
of all my attachments. When the document revision changes I know that at least one of the
attachments has changed, but I don't know which.

Wouldn't it be possible to store the revision in which the attachment was created with the

_attachments could then contain these revisions as additional property and couchdb could use
that revision as ETag when serving the attachment content which would be better than using
the documents revision like it is now. 

I don't know the code, so I don't know wheter this is possible..
