Nithish R commented on COUCHDB-1787:

I am a participant of the ICFOSS- Apache Software Foundation Joint Mentorship Programme[1].
I am interested in doing this task. I know Python to an intermediate level. I would like to
know more details.

>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Build System, Documentation

> 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
website and ) 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`.
