Subject Re: Replication Question
Date Sun, 03 Oct 2010 11:02:24 GMT
Not exactly, as I understand it. I believe that couchdb guarantees that 
after bi-directional replication, for any conflicted documents all dbs 
will choose the same rev as the 'successful' one, with the other revs in 
the _conflicted area.

I too, would love to have a means of automatically resolving document 
conflicts through a design-doc function or similar. I think it's 
probably possible to use a _changes handler to do something similar 
post-update, but builtin would be best.
