Subject Call for testing: couchjs branch
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2008 10:20:27 GMT
Hey all,

we've been working on a branch that would remove the SpiderMonkey  
sources from the CouchDB repository, so that we could instead treat  
SpiderMonkey as a normal external library dependency.

See <

 > for some background.

So what we've done on the "couchjs" branch is to add a simple C  
wrapper around the SpiderMonkey lib (src/CouchDB/couch_js.c) that  
implements only those parts of the JS shell that we actually need for  
the view server, with the minor modifications we need. And of course  
the build system was adjusted so that SpiderMonkey is detected as an  
external dependency.

The branch has now come so far along that it "worksforme", so I'd like  
to ask anyone who's interested to check out the branch, do the build  
and run some tests, and report back problems (or, hopefully at least  
in some cases, the absence of problems ;).
