Subject Query server protocol/view server questions
Date Sat, 22 May 2010 08:10:35 GMT
Hi all,

I've been trying Python views this week, and ran into some problems.

1. Breaking changes helpfully says that the line protocol changed in
0.11, but fails to detail what changed.
2. Are error messages still supposed to be objects, or are they now
lists? This was changed on the wiki for log, but not for error.
3. It would be helpful if the wiki page [1] had a more complete
overview of the protocol.

And some questions:

1. On the wiki someone asks if the reduce values are guaranteed to be
passed in-order, and I'd be interested to hear that, too.
2. Relatedly, are the keys passed guaranteed to be a contiguous block?
If not, why not?
3. Is it possible to distinguish from the view server side under which
version of the protocol its running? If not, could that be added?
