Subject Re: CREATEALIAS to non-existing collections
Date Fri, 09 Dec 2016 21:12:58 GMT
I think that might have just been an oversight. We shouldn't allow creation
of an alias for non-existent collections.

On a similar note, I think we should also be clearing out the aliases when
we DELETE a collection.
