+Oak MongoMK
+===========
+
+This module contains a `MicroKernel` implementation using MongoDB to persist
+content.
+
+Content Model
+-------------
+
+The `MongoMK` stores each node in a separate MongoDB document and updates to
+a node are stored by adding new revision/value pairs to the document. This way
+the previous state of a node is preserved and can still be retrieved by a
+session looking a given snapshot (revision) of the repository.
+
+The basic MongoDB document of a node in Oak looks like this:
+
+    {
+        "_id" : "1:/node",
+        "_deleted" : {
+            "r13f3875b5d1-0-1" : "false"
+        },
+        "_lastRev" : {
+            "1" : "r13f3875b5d1-0-1"
+        },
+        "_modified" : NumberLong(274208361),
+        "_revisions" : {
+            "r13f3875b5d1-0-1" : "true"
+        }
+    }
+
+All fields in the above document are metadata and are not exposed through the
+Oak API.
+
+The `_id` field is used as the primary key and consists of a combination of the
+depth of the path and the path itself. This is an optimization to align sibling
+keys in the index.
+
+The `_deleted` sub-document contains the revision this node was created in. In
+the above example the root node was created in revision `r13f3875b5d1-0-1`. If
+the node is later deleted, the `_deleted` sub-document will get a new field with
+the revision the node was deleted in.
+
+The sub-document `_lastRev` contains the last revision written to this node by
+each cluster node. In the above example the MongoMK cluster node with id `1`
+modified the node the last time in revision `r13f3875b5d1-0-1`, when it created
+the node.
+
+The `_modified` field contains a low-resolution timestamp when the node was last
+modified. The time resolution is five seconds.
+
+Finally, the `_revision` sub-document contains commit information about changes
+marked with a revision. E.g. the single entry in the above document tells us
+that everything marked with revision `r13f3875b5d1-0-1` is committed and
+therefore valid.
+
+Adding a property `prop` with value `foo` to the node in a next step will
+result in the following document:
+
+    {
+        "_deleted" : {
+            "r13f3875b5d1-0-1" : "false"
+        },
+        "_id" : "1:/node",
+        "_lastRev" : {
+            "1" : "r13f38818ab6-0-1"
+        },
+        "_modified" : NumberLong(274208516),
+        "_revisions" : {
+            "r13f3875b5d1-0-1" : "true",
+            "r13f38818ab6-0-1" : "true"
+        },
+        "prop" : {
+            "r13f38818ab6-0-1" : "\"foo\""
+        }
+    }
+
+Now the document contains a new sub-document with the name of the new property.
+The value of the property is annotated with the revision the property was set.
+With each successful commit to this node, a new field is added to the
+`_revision` sub-document. Similarly the `_lastRev` sub-document and `_modified`
+field are updated.
+
+After the node is deleted the document looks like this:
+
+    {
+        "_deleted" : {
+            "r13f3875b5d1-0-1" : "false",
+            "r13f38835063-2-1" : "true"
+        },
+        "_id" : "1:/node",
+        "_lastRev" : {
+            "1" : "r13f38835063-2-1"
+        },
+        "_modified" : NumberLong(274208539),
+        "_revisions" : {
+            "r13f3875b5d1-0-1" : "true",
+            "r13f38818ab6-0-1" : "true",
+            "r13f38835063-2-1" : "true"
+        },
+        "prop" : {
+            "r13f38818ab6-0-1" : "\"foo\""
+        }
+    }
+
+The `_deleted` sub-document now contains a `r13f38835063-2-1` field marking the
+node as deleted in this revision.
+
+Reading the node in previous revisions is still possible, even if it is now
+marked as deleted as of revision `r13f38835063-2-1`.
