Subject Re: HTTP POST to _replicate is sync?
Date Mon, 23 Sep 2013 10:56:10 GMT
For my money I rather like the sync and the async API. It could be
more orthogonal but it's not so bad. If I only have a few doc ids to
replicate, I prefer the sync way (_replicate) rather than creating a
document and watching it by polling or _changes or something.
