CouchDB 2.0 blog series

Hello there!  

We’re getting closer to releasing CouchDB 2.0 and leading up to its official
release, we want to publish a series of blog posts examining topics like the
history of the project, differences between the 2.0 and 1.0 architecture,
unpacking the new features, and so forth.  

To accomplish this **we need your help**, we need 7-8 CouchDB users to help
write these posts. Don’t worry, we’re not after Shakespeare here, just
introducing an idea in 200-300 words, to get folks interested in CouchDB 2.0.
I’ll be available to help with editing and coordinating the publication
schedule.  

Ideally, we’ll be able to release two posts a week, one on Monday and
Wednesday, with the weekly news still going out on Thursdays, so we’re not
over saturating the blog. Jan Lehnardt has volunteered to kick off the series
next week, with a post on the The Road to CouchDB 2.0 on Monday.  

That means we need a volunteer to write one for next Wednesday, July 27. We’re
still tossing around ideas for giving the 7-8 authors of these posts a special
kind of CouchDB swag, if that helps. :)  

Below is a list of topics (also important: if you have an idea for a topic you
**don’t see** below, please let us know!):  

**The Road to CouchDB 2.0**: (Jan)  
\- History of the big Couch fork  
\- Cloudant  
\- Big Couch merge announcement  
\- Davisphack (rnewson on the couch)

2.0 Windows Installer RC1

Hi everyone,

    https://atypical.net/mm/couchdb-2.0.0-rc1.msi

is an unofficial Windows 2.0.0 RC1 installer. Please note the 
following known issues:

  * Logs only to the console window for now.
  * No Windows Service is created, as logs would be unavailable.

Once the logging issue is worked out I'll try and release a 
new installer build with a Windows Service installation. My time
this week is extremely limited so this may not happen until
next week at the earliest.

Steps used to create this installer are detailed at

    https://github.com/dch/glazier/blob/release/couchdb_2.0/README.md

This repository will be moved into ASF infrastructure shortly.

Enjoy,
Joan Touzet

ApacheCon: Getting the word out internally

Dear Apache Enthusiast,

As you are no doubt already aware, we will be holding ApacheCon in
Seville, Spain, the week of November 14th, 2016. The call for papers
(CFP) for this event is now open, and will remain open until
September 9th.

The event is divided into two parts, each with its own CFP. The first
part of the event, called Apache Big Data, focuses on Big Data
projects and related technologies.

Website: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe
CFP:
http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apache-big-data-europe/program/cfp

The second part, called ApacheCon Europe, focuses on the Apache
Software Foundation as a whole, covering all projects, community
issues, governance, and so on.

Website: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe
CFP: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/apachecon-europe/program/cfp

ApacheCon is the official conference of the Apache Software
Foundation, and is the best place to meet members of your project and
other ASF projects, and strengthen your project's community.

If your organization is interested in sponsoring ApacheCon, contact Rich Bowen

Why exit twice? Will the second cause any effect?

Re: New contributor need help

Heya Harald,

could you do a quick write up on how to run the tests? Not sure this would be useful without, for a new contributor.

Also, please use the latest build from http://couchdb.apache.org/release-candidate/2.0/ or git
master, thanks! :)

Best
Jan

Cleaning up the git repo

Heyall,

in light of 2.0 getting real, I’d like to clean up the git repo.

We have A LOT of unused branches lying around that we can get rid of.

I’ve composed a list and I propose to DELETE all these branches, unless somebody speaks up for any number
of them to stick around within the next SEVEN DAYS.

Please read the list carefully, in case you are still working on something, or we have started on a bugfix,
but haven’t finished things to be merged yet.

If you want to adopt a branch, please reply with your name after the branch in the list, thank you!

Here’s the list:

1305-fix-isolate-db-crashes
1319-large-headers-are-corrupted
1334-revert-feature-view-server-pipelining
1346-fix-windows-indexing-hang
1425-fix-graceful-surrogate-handling
1493-fix-zerobyte-json-parsing
154-feature-gzip-post
1569-feature-low-disk-space-warn
1592-follow-symlinks-for-space-check
1598-update-mochiweb-2-3-2
1637-insensitive-replicator
1651-fix-reset-rewrite-count
1675-fix-roles-validation
