Subject git commit: updated refs/heads/master to c2da01d
Date Thu, 05 Dec 2013 12:29:08 GMT
Updated Branches:
  refs/heads/master 1ba9aa35a -> c2da01d1f


Remove pronouns

Most pronouns were awkwardly referring to COUCHDB as masculine. I left
in the ones clearly referring to a named person's gender.

I grepped for 'him', 'he' and 'his' and fixed all matches I found, if
there are more, everyone is encouraged to fix them.

I corrected some awkward sentence structures as I went because I just
couldn't resist.
