Thanks Elliot, and everyone at Ubuntu! I'm really excited to see what
people do with a local CouchDB. This means a lot for the project and
I'm honored to hear your praise for the community.

Thanks, devs - without people writing patches, there is no CouchDB.
This is an important time for the project - let's make sure to give
gentle introductions to the rush of new users.

Now is a great time to be writing "hello world" tutorials - we have a
unique opportunity to shape the future of the web, and the best way to
do that is to make it easy for new people to get up to speed and feel
their voice is heard in the project.
