Subject Re: URL transformation within CouchDB?
Date Fri, 09 Apr 2010 08:50:52 GMT
Hi,
	Is http://couchdb:5984/db/images%2Fhome%2Fblah.png a document about  
the image or the image itself? What about having some of the directory  
structure in the db names? How deep does the directory need to go?
Cheers
Simon
