Dear community,

I am pleased to announce that the CouchDB Project Management Committee
has elected Clemens Stolle as a CouchDB committer.

    Apache ID: klaemo

well as write access to public project infrastructure.

This election was made in recognition of Clemens's commitment to the
project. We mean this in the sense of being loyal to the project and
its interests.

Please join me in extending a warm welcome to Clemens!

On behalf of the CouchDB PMC,
Robert :)

Re: Project Fauxton Feedback

Hi James,

Thanks for responding! Its so interesting to learn about how people are
using Fauxton!

I've heard some similar concerns about the whitespace/font size issues.
I'll raise it again with the designers that we are working with, so it's on
their radar.

I didn't realize that Fauxton would be used as a debugging tool! I feel
really proud that it's useful in that arena.
Regarding the layout breaking at smaller widths, this is also one of my pet
peeves as well. I will also bring it up again to folks.

I agree with you about the table structure (vs raw JSON preview). I am
pushing that we definitely bring tables back (with an accompanying json

Your comment about most efficient  the use of real estate is noted. I
believe we could be doing something different as well.

Some of the things I've heard (from you and others), is that the natural
way people scan the screen for information is important, and we are not
addressing that feedback (yet).


Let me know what you think of the newest version if you get a chance to
pull it.

Project Fauxton Feedback


I am at the beginning of writing a presentation that I am hoping to name:
 "The State of Fauxton 2015", and I would like to include community
concerns about Project Fauxton, and where we hope it will go.

One of the things I would like to cover in my presentation is what CouchDB
as a community, would like to see implemented in Fauxton, and what can be

I would really appreciate some ideas if you have time.

Let's cut a Nano release

Hi, dev <at> . And hi, Johannes (hope you see this).

Last month, you asked what to do about releasing Apache Nano (or Apache
CouchDB Nano, or whatever its name is).

I would like to get involved in that effort, and to help push it forward.

Nuno and the team graciously donated the project to the ASF. I know that
much. Here are some open questions I feel remain.

1. There are still commits going into github.com/dscape/nano although only
Johannes so-far. I will submit a pull request to dscape to update the
README to point to the ASF project.

2. We have no JIRA project for it. May I get involved in creating that? Any

3. We have no issue tracker in GitHub either. For me, I would personally do
what I once learned from Jan ("collect feedback from customers where they
are"). So I would like to have github issues if possible? Any way I can

4. What about publishing to npm? IMO, le mieux, c'est l'ennemi du bien, I
am happy asking Johannes to prepare a Git tag, then ask Johannes to `git
pull; git checkout; npm publish`. And then we can sort out the "real" fix
later, yeah?

5. What about publishing outside of npm? Must we still cut the release
artifacts, and have the VOTEs? My feeling is, the vote is proper and
useful, but the release artifacts are largely useless, given the ubiquity
