Subject Re: How to cancel a continuous replication task
Date Thu, 19 Aug 2010 16:24:48 GMT
Did you get an {"ok":true,"_local_id":"foo"} response from the first
_replicate call?

I've just verified that adding "cancel":true to the original
_replicate setting cancels the task. Perhaps you're on an earlier
version than this feature?
