Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-69) Allow selective retaining of older revisions to a document
Date Sun, 15 Feb 2009 22:01:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-69?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12673754#action_12673754

Jens Alfke commented on COUCHDB-69:
-----------------------------------

Maybe this goes without saying, but this would be excellent for implementing wikis or other
version-control systems.
It would also help in designing distributed systems where there is less mutual trust between
instances -- pulling a new version of a document from a peer is less dangerous if the existing
version persists and can be rolled back to.

> At the moment, compaction gets rid of all old revisions of a document. Also, replication
also deals with the latest revision. It would be nice if it would be possible to specify a
list of revisions to keep around that do not get compacted away and replicated.
