Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1952) How exactly are underscore-prefixed fields reserved?
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 19:39:37 GMT
Nathan Vander Wilt created COUCHDB-1952:

             Summary: How exactly are underscore-prefixed fields reserved?
                 Key: COUCHDB-1952
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
            Reporter: Nathan Vander Wilt

The wiki stated "Note that any top-level fields within a JSON document containing a name that
starts with a _ prefix are reserved for use by CouchDB itself."

In the new documentation the closest equivalent I can find is the hand-wavy "As a general
rule, URL components and JSON fields starting with the _ (underscore) character represent
a special component or entity within the server or returned object."

I'd like to see the official documentation clarified:
- are underscore fields still reserved? (I'm assuming so.)
- are they reserved only at the top level? (I'm hoping so.)
