Will try to work  with that then.

It could be months or days. Depends on the the time each others can
put in it,  *if the process allows it*. This is imo a big priority, we
already see a lot of "bricolage"  (makeshift?) coming in the code.

The goal I wished in the thread I launched was to use rebar and mix it
with configure (based on bigcouch work and patches like these one). I
don't see how the question is so distant seeing the result of these
patches. Neither I see why we shouldn't target this right now. Anyway,
maybe we can open a ticket and track progress in it ?
