Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-67) Allow periods (".") in database names
Date Sun, 03 Aug 2008 19:15:44 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-67?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12619368#action_12619368

Chris Anderson commented on COUCHDB-67:
---------------------------------------

Being able to identify particular databases (and views indexes) in the filesystem is very
handy when I'm doing backups, watching view-generation progress, or moving data across machines
- the hash approach wouldn't make this impossible, but it would add an extra non-obvious step.

Unless there's a compelling case for allowing wide choice of database and view names, I'd
prefer to have a transparent mapping between the filesystem and CouchDB's interface.

> Allow periods in database names. We need to find out if a period is among the "safe"
characters that can be used for filenames on most filesystems.
