    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-348?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13845612#comment-13845612

Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-348:
-----------------------------------------

What about

- / -> Json : api version , link to other resources (to allow the discovery)
- /couchdb/{...our api...}
- /ui -> ui (or admin whatever) a

Then we make sure to not pollute the API .

> As more people are adopting CouchDB, the number of questions along the lines of "All
I see is {"couchdb":"Welcome","version":"0.10.0a773399"}, what now?"
> If this page redirected to /_utils/ (or maybe something more user-focussed) when the
accept headers included html, we could make the first-time user experience more palatable.
> There's some code in COUCHDB-234 that might be helpful here.
