I like the second plan more.

Mark prepared the installer and it serves well, providing windows
users with an easy way to play with 0.11.0. Adding 'official' stamp
retrospectively doesn't add much value, IMO.

I'd rather focus on squishing COUCHDB-86 and then getting the release
right. Also, there's fewer steps before the party.

Has it been confirmed that jl/windows-file-share-delete will be in the
next erlang release? In the last 'What's cooking in erlang/otp'
(2010-03-22) it hadn't yet moved from 'cooking' to 'graduated'.

I played a little with 0.11.0 w/ COUCHDB-86 patch applied:
- All futon tests, except uuids, pass.
- Pull replication didn't work for a large db (2.4M docs, 4.5GB).
Couch crashed after 100 000 and 1.7M docs
- Etap tests didn't work. Should they?
