Mathias's book is great. I'd love to see more detail in Riak wiki, or maybe
a separate reference section. For instance, where are the details of
available Action arguments for for map_object_value, or for that matter the
list of available built-in m/r functions? As far as I know, you've got to
dig into riak_kv_mapreduce.erl* *to find out. Riak is easy to set up and
use, but once you get past basic use-cases, getting information isn't as
simple as it could be.
