Cool, thanks!

This is my fault, I've been so busy with working on getting Ubuntu 9.10
ready for release. Sorry about that. Good intentions etc. etc.

I do very much want to get all the Ubuntu packaging changes for CouchDB
into Debian, along with the latest and greatest version of CouchDB. I
didn't feel as comfortable asking for svn snapshots of CouchDB to be
uploaded to Debian, so we did a lot of uploads and testing of svn
snaphots directly into Ubuntu. In about 3 weeks Ubuntu 9.10 will be
released, and then we'll start syncing automatically from Debian again,
which provides really good motivation to get the Debian packages caught up.
