This is *NOT* a vote on releasing 1.0.2.

I've gone through the directions for preparing a release and I'd like
to get some feedback on the artefacts themselves. This means things
like verifying the tarball signature, the sha1 and md5 checksums and
whether the tarball is missing anything.

To check the signatures, you can use the directions at [1]. The
artefacts themselves are located at [2].

To check what's in the tarball vs what's not you can do this:

$ mkdir tmp && cd tmp
$ svn export
$ wget
$ tar -xvzf apache-couchdb-1.0.2.tar.gz
$ diff -r apache-couchdb-1.0.2 1.0.2

I repeat, this is *NOT* a vote on the release. We're merely working on
improving our bus factor.
