Capistrano rollback_with_migrations


#1

Is there a reason why there is no built in task
rollback_with_migrations in capistrano? Before I go look at the
source and try overriding that method, I thought there might be a good
reason why it’s not there that I haven’t though of.

Anyone know?

In my experience DDL isn’t generally under transaction control, so
there isn’t really a safe way to rollback; ie you don’t know how much
or little was successful.

Although I understand that postgres has support for transactions
around DDL.
