Maybe indeed linking to an unofficial page could do the trink. with
glazier for windows. While we are here would also link to rebared
couchdb maintained by refuge. The last one could happen this weekend.
After discussing with some at EUC it appears there are some interest
for it.

But I wouldn't stop to that. I think starting to work on this
toolchain would be pretty interresting. That's too bad that I can't
attend to the couchack finally , would have enjoy to talk with dave
about that ... but maybe that could be done online.
