Just to be clear, the idea would be creating only  a release tarrball from
all the git repositories or do you also think to create a full repository
from all the dependencies? Something done by Cloudi for example which build
the main repository [1] from the other repositories [2]. rcouch is only
creating a tarball containing all erlang deps [3] .

Also what about the npm modules that are fetched for futon and
couchjs-node? Do you think we need to import them as well? At least maybe
should we provide a mirror?
