It appears that when a file is in the signature list, but no longer in the couchapp (e.g. deleted manually? or by a partial/failed nonatomic push?) then couchapp crashes because it tries to remove the file from attachments again.


@qris what version of couchapp did this happen with?

Here's what I tried with a couchapp direction containing a PDF in _attachments:

couchapp -v push . http://localhost:5984/testing
# confirmed attachment was there
# confirmed attachment in couchapp.signatures list
# Using Futon, I deleted the attachment & saved the document
couchapp -v push . http://localhost:5984/testing
# attachment was not re-attached, but the signature in couchapp.signatures was still there

Certainly a bug.

@qris, if you could describe the process you went through, and what version of couchapp you were used, I'd appreciate it!


Hi @BigBlueHat, sorry it was a very long time ago:

  • I can't remember the process.
  • I'm currently using Couchapp (version 1.0.1) which was installed 11 months ago.
  • I can't remember if that was before or after this issue occurred, or what version of CouchApp I might have been running before that.
  • However, lines 111 and 221 of /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/couchapp/ match the stack trace above.
