Subject CouchDB users publicly visible
Date Tue, 04 Jan 2011 21:17:06 GMT
My understanding of the CouchDB '_users' table is that in order to
have a user sign up (for example, using $.couch.signup(...)), you have
to have the '_users' table publicly visible, and hence have all users
in your app publicly visible?

This doesn't seem so great for me, or the potential users of my app.

For example, I can see all the users on the couchone site here:

This includes potentially sensitive information like people's e-mail address':

I'm assuming update access implies read access? Am I missing something..?
