We can sign a binary. I am happy to do so if somebody is needed. I would just need to make
sure I was clear on the build process (which I want to be anyway). 
— This isn't necessary yet but I'd say it's a nice-to-have prior to 10.8 being released
(I guess this Summer).

Particularly taking about just CouchDB (rather than CouchDBX), Hans has a binary, I do not.

Hans' Couchbase/CouchDBX fork is much closer to the Couchbase HEAD. We should use it.

Benoit's rcouch repo has "rcouchx" which is the Mac app — this automates pulling all the
Erlang/CouchDB dependencies — it would be nice to merge this with Hans' CouchDBX.

After that it's: 
A) Keeping the CouchDB binary up to date. 
B) Features for CouchDBX — logging and config were mentioned. 

Obviously there's this list but where's the best place to coordinate discussions of B? The
wiki, GitHub, a public Trello board, IRC?
