Subject Re: command line interface to manage CouchDB replication
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 12:27:46 GMT

The utility looks great. I like the use of the COUCHCLI_CONFIG file for
storing host information.

What is the difference between 'backup' and 'replicate'? It seems that
backup adds a prefix to the databases?
