TouchDB's reverse-engineered write-up of the Couch replication protocol
There really isn’t a separate “protocol” per se for replication. Instead, replication uses CouchDB’s REST API and data model. It’s therefore a bit difficult to talk about replication independently of the rest of CouchDB. In this document I’ll focus on the algorithm used, and link to documentation of the APIs it invokes. The “protocol” is simply the set of those APIs operating over HTTP.
