Hi Nils,

to easily create a point-in-time snapshot of a database.

That were my thoughts.

So it will be replication, then filesystem snapshot of the database with rsync to store different
versions to travel back in time if necessary.

Does anybody has some other idea? Does anybody know how to "cut" the end of a couchDB file
