Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-1004) list_to_existing_atom is too restrictive as used by couch_rep
Date Sun, 02 Jan 2011 21:54:46 GMT


Adam Kocoloski commented on COUCHDB-1004:

Yep, and that's exactly how couch_util:to_existing_atom/1 works (sorry, my initial comment
just said to_existing_atom which was stupidly vague).

> We'd like to additional information to db_info in BigCouch, such as the Q and N constants
for a given database. This causes replication to fail when replicating from BigCouch to CouchDB
due to the use of list_to_existing_atom in couch_rep:dbinfo(...
> The claim is that list_to_atom pollutes the atoms table, however superficial testing
indicates this is not the case, list_to_atom when called repeatedly seems to work fine. If
this is true then consider reverting list_to_existing_atom back to list_to_atom.
