Subject [REPORT] CouchDB
Date Fri, 10 May 2013 16:12:15 GMT
Hi all,

I just sent this report to the ASF board:


Apache CouchDB is a database that uses JSON for documents, JavaScript for
MapReduce queries, and regular HTTP for an API.


   - 1.2.2 (4th April 2013)

   - 1.3.0 (24th April 2013)


   - Work is underway to merge in Cloudant's BigCouch fork which will add
     clustering capabilities to CouchDB.
   - Work is underway to merge in Cloudant's Fauxton overhaul of the
     CouchDB admin interface.
   - Work is underway to merge in parts of BenoƮt Chesneau's rcouch fork
     which improves the build system.
   - Work is underway to improve our test suite with a view toward making
     it more stable.
   - The documentation donation from Couchbase was merged in and shipped
     with CouchDB 1.3.0.

The docs are also available at:

The project is undergoing an expansionist phase. The PMC is
focusing onbolstering the committer base, and the committer
base is focusing on bolstering CouchDB. As part of this, we
are also conducting several restructuring exercises. These
include: recruiting more committers, re-enforcing expectations
around consensus building and decision making processes,
re-evaluating our Git workflow, and switching to regular
time-based releases. These exercises are going very well
so far.

We have established consensus to have GitHub pull request
comment notifications sent to the development mailing list.
This will be an experiment. Our goal is to increase the
visibility of important activity that is happening away
from the lists. Our success criteria will be increased
activity and attention to contributions coming in from
GitHub. We will re-enforce the primacy of the mailing list
for development discussion and decision making, and will
keep a watchful eye for any issues.


Including the following additions, CouchDB has 27 committers and 9 PMC

New committers:

    - Dale Harvey
    - Wendall Cada
    - Alexander Shorin
    - Ryan Ramage

No new PMC members.
