Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1819) Support style=main_only as an option on the source feed when replicating
Date Tue, 18 Jun 2013 13:45:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1819?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13686719#comment-13686719

Dave Cottlehuber commented on COUCHDB-1819:
-------------------------------------------

Thanks for logging a ticket on this Stephen. I can see why you might find this useful but
this doesn't feel aligned to CouchDB for me. Functioning replication (without losing your
data during conflict resolution :-) is one of our core features, and I can't see how this
API change would play well with other Couch-like replication systems if they wish to stay
compatible.

Any more details on the use case?

An alternative is to write your own replicator, see https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/nodejs/_v8G6yutMkg/HtgU596_C1QJ
and https://github.com/mikeal/replicate for an example. The replicator is just a clever HTTP
client, so you can do the same thing yourself.

> The goal is to not propagate conflicts and _deleted_conflicts.
> This of course has the implication of blindly accepting couchdb's default conflict resolution
algorithm and not giving the user a chance fix conflicts.
