Subject Eventual Consistency
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2014 04:19:11 GMT

First, please let me know if I'm posting it in a wrong place.

My question is, how does CouchDB claims that it has "eventual 
consistency" while the records in it have "_rev" field? For now I've 
learned that if you don't have the latest _rev field CouchDB doesn't 
allow you to update the record, complaining that there's a conflict.

So, can you give me an example of a scenario when CouchDB shows the 
behaviour of "eventual consistency"? In that scenario, what if there is 
eventually a conflict? Who will be responsible to resolve it?
