Subject [jira] Closed: (COUCHDB-511) Revision referencing via something like Git's RefLog Shortnames
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2009 10:06:16 GMT


Jan Lehnardt closed COUCHDB-511.

    Resolution: Won't Fix

Retrieving old revs is a feature that is for internal use only (e.g. the replicator uses it).
Applications should not use it. Improving usability will send the wrong message :) This might
change when we get to support for persistent history, but we have a ticket for that already.

> Accessing earlier revisions isn't hard, but it would be very handy to reference them
via a short hand notation similar to Git's RefLog Shortnames. Perhaps something very similar:
> http://localhost:5984/db/doc?rev=^
>  - this would get the previous revision
> http://localhost:5984/db/doc?rev=^3
>  - this would get the revision 3 submissions ago
> Just an idea.
