Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1824) Official documentation of replication algorithm?
Date Fri, 21 Jun 2013 15:48:20 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1824?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13690407#comment-13690407

Jens Alfke commented on COUCHDB-1824:
-------------------------------------

They're both needed for interoperability. The HTTP calls used by the replicator are documented
now, but only on the unofficial wiki, and only because I added documentation along the way
while I wrote the TouchDB replicator. At the time a lot of the info existed only in the source
code and in the heads of people like Filipe and Damien.

My unstated assumption here is that replication interoperability is a good thing, and that
other database implementations should support the same protocol and algorithms so they can
freely replicate with CouchDB and each other. That's very powerful, and I don't know of any
other open protocols for replication.

> Though it's in some ways an internal detail, it might be nice to provide a canonical
description of CouchDB's replication protocol (algorithm, really) in the documentation. See
