Subject Re: handling keys in the REST view API
Date Fri, 29 May 2009 10:49:43 GMT
Hi Sergey,

Yes, I know there are other projects which might better fit my  
requirements. That is not the point. I just wanted to see what the  
'edges' of couchdb are. 'sanitizing' input parameters is one of my  
'blindspots' at the moment, the stemming is just an example where i'd  
like to use it.
