Hey,

I think the current project description is too wordy and confusing:

  Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free
  document-oriented database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API. Among other
  features, it provides robust, incremental replication with bi-directional
  conflict detection and resolution, and is queryable and indexable using a
  table-oriented view engine with JavaScript acting as the default view
  definition language.

  CouchDB is written in Erlang, but can be easily accessed from any environment
  that provides means to make HTTP requests. There are a multitude of
  third-party client libraries that make this even easier for a variety of
  programming languages and environments.

                                          - http://couchdb.apache.org/index.html

I suggest the following replacement:

  Apache CouchDB is a document-oriented database with a RESTful JSON API. It
  provides incremental replication with bi-directional conflict resolution, and
  can be queried and indexed with JavaScript, or any other language.

  CouchDB is written in Erlang, but can be accessed from any environment that
  allows HTTP requests. There are myriad third-party client libraries that make
  this even easier from your programming language of choice.

Can I go ahead and make the change?

Thanks,
