Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-650) Add "now" option for ?since parameter on _changes
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 06:21:27 GMT


Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-650:

The problem with since=now is that it can lead to missed updates.

There should be a ticket to make view responses include the view_seq and to expose doc._local_seq
via a GET parameter.

It's much better to know what seq your state is current as of, than to miss updates.

two requests (one to extract seq from /db, and one _changes).
