Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-687) Add md5 hash to _attachments properties for documents
Date Thu, 11 Mar 2010 10:32:27 GMT


Filipe Manana commented on COUCHDB-687:

That seems useful to me as well. Therefore I vote +1 on it.

If nobody is already working on a patch for this, I volunteer to do it. Most of the code that
needs to be touched can be found in the patch for ticket CouchDB-583.

>           "content_type": "text/javascript"

> If a client wanted to sync local files as attachments with a document it would not currently
be able to do so without keeping a local store of the revpos. If this information included
an md5 hash of the attachment clients could compare it against a hash of the local file to
see if they match.
