Subject how do u handle "schema" changes ?
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2012 10:58:01 GMT
i know it may sound self-contradictory for couchdb being schemaless ..

but documents that go into it do have structure/schema. 
And once that changes - simplest example being renaming of some field -
what's the recipe? 
i know it all from the sql land, but this is different.

update the documents ? 
or make all code - both outside and inside couchdb (views etc) -
accept/handle both old and new?

i guess the answer is "it depends", still, any suggestions?
