> I'm +1 on the idea to have "official binaries"

What is your feeling on having "unofficial binaries" listed until the
full ability to get official binaries? I think there maybe some
urgency to get a download page. Once that is going, that will provide
some time to work on proper binaries. As Jan put it:

For the "unofficial binaries" I don't think we should limit how they
are built. Build-couchdb does not build windows yet. I am sure we will
have to pull from Dave's work for the windows build. All the end user
cares about is that it runs. They don't care how it was built.

That being said, I would propose that to submit a "unofficial binary",
a documented build process should be provided. An end user may not
care about how it was built, but the couch community will.
