Subject Re: Filtered replication topologies

Hi Andreas,

If you replicated to R1..n via an intermediate database they will not know the source DB.
But if you KNOW that M's seq N has already made its way via I to the Rs, you can use that
seq N as a start seq parameter for a new replication between M and the Rs.

curl -sg -X POST 'http://sourceHost:5984/_replicate' -H 'Content-Type:application/json' -d
