Subject Re: couchdb osx binary branding

When was this added. I am really not happy about us linking to a Github
download from our homepage. This is very bad practice, IMO. (Though I am
very happy that we are making progress on the OS X front.)

What will it take to get this download being built from the source by a
member of the release team, and hosted on ASF hardware?
