This is exactly what I meant.

Now, it doesn't mean you _can't_ do this.  In fact, some projects have
different commit groups for documentation than for code.  But in
general, it's almost always better to make life simpler and have one
commit group.

Again, I don't want to tell you how to run CouchDB.  I just wanted to
give a little friendly insight.
