Subject Re: Database synchronization protocol?
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2011 14:00:03 GMT
Oh dear... ;) Not at all the same thing. :)

I agree with Stuart that it'd be great to see the CouchDB replication 
"protocol" (HTTP + MVCC + _changes feed...mostly) codified into a 
specification that could be implemented anywhere. There's working being 
done to prove that it can be with Mikeal's PouchDB project:

Perhaps the first step looks like listing off the key pieces of the 
puzzle and things that might be less obvious like needing consistent, 
though arbitrary, conflict "resolution" (always selecting the same winner).

Anyone know if there's a wiki page or blog post that would get this 
process started? If not, anyone know enough about the feature to start 
one? :)
