Danish Muneer commented on COUCHDB-1787:
----------------------------------------

Thank you Dave for such a detailed insight, yes I understand now the complexities, yes sure
I will be applying in a GSoC manner after reading more about Sphinx. One more thing, Friday
is 3rd May, 5th May is Sunday. What's the due date?

> The release process today contains a large number of manual transformation steps.
> Fixing this will make the release process significantly easier for release managers,
as well as less error-prone.
> Ideally the output formats (NEWS, CHANGES in source tree, and HTML snippets for http://couchdb.org/
website and http://blogs.apache.org/couchdb ) can be auto-generated from either the .rst files
in share/doc/src using sphinx's .versionaddded/changed tags, or potentially from commit messages
if this is appropriate.
> CouchDB documentation is generated today from restructured text using python code, and
rolled into the release documentation during `make distcheck`.
