Secondary index maintenance

Hi Theo,

The Riak HTTP client for Erlang uses the 'riakc_obj' from the PB client to represent records. You can therefore use any utility functions available there to manipulate metadata. The HTTP client for Erlang does however currently not support secondary indexes [1], meaning that these will not be parsed nor sent when getting or putting an object.


Best regards,
