Subject Re: max_document_size limits on hosted services?

We have the maximum size set smaller at Cloudant, but certainly well above the 200 KB you mention
here.  I'm not aware of other more restrictive limits in our setup (and I'm certain multi-MB
uploads work in the general case).  Cheers,

a server error with very large JSON documents?
