Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1399) Rename _rev to _mvcc or _lock
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 12:55:53 GMT


Alexander Shorin commented on COUCHDB-1399:

Would `_state` name be more convenient? May be I'm wrong, but I'd like to count `_rev` as
document state id, because it's better describes functional of this field: last document state,
conflict document states etc.
Also, there are `_revisions` and `_attachments/revpos` fields that should be noticed too as
well as `db/_rev_count` resource and `rev`, `rev_info`, `open_revs` document resource parameters.
Have I missed something?

> We should rename the "revisions" to "lock" or "token" or some other suitably opaque term
so we stop getting people asking questions about treating them as revisions.
