Subject Re: So, how do we get the Mac binary on the home page?

Hi Jan,

> Can you specify what systems should use which versions, so we can label them correctly
on the website?

For Mac OS X 10.6.8 to 10.7.2:

For Mac OS X 10.7.3 and later

I prefer to use only the well known port 5984.

I agree on using the sandboxing mode. I suggest to make the next version (when CouchDB 1.3
comes out) that way.

I also agree on having the code in the CouchDB repo. Maybe someone with commit rights can
do the checkin. The
License is already Apache.

It is the same, but built with XCode 4.2. Apple made some significant changes from 10.7.2
to 10.7.3.
