Great - it can be found at

Sorry, but this needs to be undertaken by someone who actually believes 
there is an issue and can articulate it.  This person also needs to 
understand the couchdb dependencies on any platform (Windows is no 
different in this regard) and understands the concept of a "binary 
release".  While I meet the last 2 criteria, I don't meet the first.

So please let me be completely clear and explicitly decline for the 3rd 
time :)
