Dealing with deleted metadata when the same name is added back RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have the scenario where I delete a record and it's metadata with a primary key of say "A".  Then, sometime later, I add the same record back with primary key of "A" again.  When I enumerate my metadata, it shows that "A" is marked for deletetion as I would expect.  However, I can not add "A" back.  I don't want to clear all tombstones because I might need them for some other sync pair.

    What is the recommended way to deal with this.  Should I remove just the deleted record so I can add it back?  I'm worried about confusing other pairs.
