Subject Re: suppoted platforms check of couchdb 1.0.2?
Date Mon, 24 Jan 2011 19:55:08 GMT
I signed up to the MSDN offer from the ASF. One thing I'd like to use
it for is to get CouchDB working on Windows a bit better, though it's
not my main reason for signing up.

If it turns out to be a manageable amount of work, who knows, but I'll
definitely put some time into making it suck less.

knows of any outstanding issues, or whatever, then place speak up.

Let's cross that bridge when we come to it.
