We added two new Committers to the project: Jason Smith and Dave
Cottlehuber. Both have been contributing to the CouchDB ecosystem and
Apache CouchDB in particular for quite some time.

The PMC chair finally got around to announce Paul Davis as a new member
of the PMC, the vote for which occurred last year.

A new major release 1.2.0 is around the corner. For 1.2.0, for the first
time, we will be voting on official Windows release binaries (courtesy
of Dave Cottlehuber's work).

Noticeable pick-up of activity around pressing issues, including
community members publicly applauding the efforts.

Git integration is going well. Developers are getting into the habit of
regular branching and merging of features and bugfixes. Sharing of
changes for testing and review is becoming easier as well. As cases in
point, a large refactoring of an internal component[1] went very smooth
as did the collaboration on a new security related feature. Regular,
smaller work and bugfixes have been going on at the same time and was in
no way hindered. We started documenting committer and contributor
workflows on the wiki.

PMC member Noah Slater started an inquiry with trademarks@ about a
potential confusion with the Couchbase brand. While the thread is
ongoing, Couchbase have already signaled eagerness to help resolve any
issues. In the past, a similar inquiry about Couchbase's line CouchConf
conferences was resolved to mutual satisfaction as well.

Project founder Damien Katz resigned from the PMC after posting
controversial blog posts challenging the future of the project.


On behalf of the CouchDB PMC,
Jan Lehnardt
