I am not quite sure who you addressing here, that is, who's  
responsible to do what now, but since you've sent this to -dev, I  
guess we all are :-)

Here's a draft. I have never done this before and looking at the  
examples you linked to, it might be a bit verbose. Feel free (anyone)  
to edit the draft in any way. I am in no way attached to what compiled  

(For the sake of readability, I ommitted any wiki markup)


IPMC Reviews:

CouchDB is a distributed document database written in Erlang. The  
project entered incubation on February 12th, 2008.

The infrastructure (SVN, JIRA, mailing lists etc) have been set up and  
the team started moving source and documentation from their former  
homes to the ASF.

Work on CouchDB that has begun earlier is being continued and  
committed to the new repository. This includes a major refactoring and  
subsequent simplification of the core code base (-500 (ca. 10%) LOC)  
and its modularisation. The storage and view engines are now separate  
entities that can be worked on independently. This was done in  
preparation for the upcoming database compaction feature, which is in  
its final stages of development.

At the same time, the mochiweb branch is very active, entirely driven  
by Christopher Lenz. The goal of this branch is to replace the Erlang/ 
OTP inets HTTP server with the more appropriate Mochiweb package. This  
is still work in progress, but at the moment, more than half of our  
test suite succeeds.

Noah Slater's been active to review, move and convert the contents of

, the former home of the CouchDB documentation to the ASF provided  
MoinMoin installation. That includes the setup of human readable  
redirects and the development of a set of mod_rewrite rules that still  
need to be set up.

Damien Katz is sill fighting the current host of the couchdb.* domains  
to successfully redirect to our new virtual homes.

The IBM software grant that is required for Damien Katz's code  
contributions is reportedly on file with the ASF.
