I've only ever been able to find the hash value in the log. If it's in _active_tasks where
is it?

My replication entries in _active_tasks look like

ba3959: http://myserver.example:5984/mydb/ -> mydb

And I don't believe ba3959 is long enough. Isn't the hash an MD5 of the replication information?

If there was a way to get it out of _active_tasks it would be extremely convenient.
