Hi Yashin,

Good timing to ask about this - we are just going into a release cycle
atm and this would be a great opportunity to see how this works at
present, vs how it could work!

I wonder if Alex or Dirkjan might be interested in co-mentoring this,
I can take care of paperwork & stuff, but I'm not in a position to
offer useful technical guidance as I'm not a pythoneer yet.

If you're not already subscribed to dev@ please do, and check the
archives[1],[2] for some relevant background, and the release pages on
the wiki. You should try setting up the development environment as
knowing how this works is a big help:
https://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/master/DEVELOPERS . I recommend
you stick with R15B03-1 or R14B04 if you've not installed erlang
before, this will be the path of least resistance. If your OS doesn't
have a suitable erlang built in, check ErlangSolutions[4]. For
spidermonkey, use Cloudant's pre-built packages [5],[6], as the
version matters to couchdb.
