Subject [jira] [Resolved] (COUCHDB-1141) Docs deleted via PUT or POST do not have contents removed.

Damien Katz resolved COUCHDB-1141.
----------------------------------

    Resolution: Not A Problem
      Assignee: Damien Katz  (was: Robert Newson)

This is by design. Deleted documents are supposed be able to contain meta information about
who deleted them, etc, because they replicate. The problem might be a documentation issue,
as clients need to make sure the document body is empty when bulk deleting.

> If a doc is deleted via -X DELETE, the resulting doc contains only id/rev_deleted:true.
However, if a doc is deleted via PUT or POST, through adding _deleted:true, the entire contents
of the doc remains stored. Even after compaction, the original document contents remain.
> This issue is causing databases with large docs to become bloated over time, as the original
doc contents remain in the database even after being deleted.
