Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-216) Make couchdb adhere more to OTP guidelines
Date Sun, 30 Aug 2009 18:17:32 GMT


Noah Slater commented on COUCHDB-216:

"I think you mean the rel file."

Yes, I did.

"Keeping the app file up to date *is* a priority as it's used for other things like detecting
conflicting registered processes."

Really does it do anything concrete for us? It seems like a very silly and pointless file
to me.

"Hmm, some folks might be packaging CouchDB as part of an Erlang release, in which case they'll
be aware of the Erlang version issue."

I was packaging CouchDB as part of the Debian Erlang packages, and unless you tie the CouchDB
package to a specific version of the Erlang package, and update them in tandem, you're hosed.

"To me, removing the .app file is unacceptable. The fact that its broken is just a reminder
that we've been Doing It Wrong and should fix things, not break them even further."

The fact that we've only just noticed should indicate that it probably doesn't matter.

> From my beginner's perception of OTP, it seems CouchDB is not treated as a running application
when it is actually running. E.g. appmon doesn't show the application once CouchDB is started.
