Subject couchdb pull request: fix the mixed use of the word "method"
Date Thu, 10 Oct 2013 20:20:54 GMT
GitHub user BigBlueHat opened a pull request:

    fix the mixed use of the word "method"

    The basic.rst file explains how an HTTP API uses HTTP methods to interact with an API.
Further use of the word "method" throughout the API docs, however, use it different ways.
    These commits hopefully clarifies and cleans up the mixed usage.

You can merge this pull request into a Git repository by running:

    $ git pull fix-method-terminology

Alternatively you can review and apply these changes as the patch at:

    fixed `method` terminology usage w/database
    The basics.rst includes an explination of how
    an HTTP API works (leveraging HTTP methods
    rather than inventing new ones), but the API
    reference docs misuse the term thereafter.
