Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-69) Allow selective retaining of older revisions to a document
Date Sun, 16 Aug 2009 18:31:14 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis commented on COUCHDB-69:

After taking a closer look at this, I'm with Chris and Adam that the double deleted leaf thing
is kind of weird. I didn't sink far enough in to think of anything better, but it does seem
kind of odd.

Two notes about testing. I'd like to see alot more thorough tests for this. Its kind of big,
so making sure we understand how things are changing would be good. Plus it'd help to have
better tests for the rev tree behavior for people learning about revisions. I'd vote for dropping
95% of what's in history.js to focus on testing the behavior of revisions. I'd also vote for
renaming it to rev_tree.js or similar and including basic revision tree info.

Also, could you add an etap test 066-kt-get-nodes.t or similar or add to one of the existing
tests for your new code in couch_key_tree.erl?

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.
