Subject Relying on revisions for rollbacks
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2008 11:29:11 GMT
Hi all,

There's a thing not entirely clear to me from the docs I've read: 

If I want to create, let's say, a Wiki that keeps old reversions of a
document and allows rollback and comparison between revisions - can I
rely on CouchDB's internal revisioning, or should I implement this

As far as I understood, CouchDB does not keep old revisions indefinitely
- so if I update a document, it's previous revisions might be deleted
after a while.

Is this true?



Best Regards,
