Subject Re: Couchdb 0.11 replication issue
Date Thu, 22 Apr 2010 09:32:55 GMT

Do you have large attachments (bigger than 1Mb in your source DB)? If so,
then it's normal. There's a ticket/patch ( that fixes the push
replication when docs have large attachments.

However that patch was applied on trunk only, therefore not on the 0.11

Can you test with trunk?
