garrensmith Mango match doc on co-ordinating node (#1609)
* Mango match doc on co-ordinating node

This fixes an issue when doing a rolling upgrade of a CouchDB cluster
and adding commit a6bc72e the nodes that were not upgraded yet would
send through all the docs in the index and those would be passed through
to the user because the co-oridnator would assume it was matched at the
node level. This adds in a check to see if it has been matched at the
node level or not. And then performs a match if required.

Verifying your Installation

Run a basic test suite for CouchDB by browsing here:

Getting started with developing

For more detail, read the README-DEV.rst file in this directory.

Basically you just have to install the needed dependencies which are documented in the install docs and then run ./configure && make.

You don't need to run make install after compiling, just use ./dev/run to spin up three nodes. You can add haproxy as a caching layer in front of this cluster by running ./dev/run --with-haproxy --haproxy=/path/to/haproxy . You will now have a local cluster listening on port 5984.

For Fauxton developers fixing the admin-party does not work via the button in Fauxton. To fix the admin party you have to run ./dev/run with the admin flag, e.g. ./dev/run --admin=username:password. If you want to have an admin-party, just omit the flag.
