Subject Re: associating UUIDs to DBs
Date Tue, 02 Feb 2010 19:25:02 GMT
I'm not entirely happy with this patch and I'd like some help figuring
out what to do about it.

I foresee problems when database files are copied or backed up on
disk. It's possible to end up with two couchdb instances hosting
databases with the same uuid. The problem is that the uuid is no
longer meaningful, as it doesn't do what it was intended to (uniquely
identify the database).

Can anyone see a way around this?
