Dale Harvey created COUCHDB-2383:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Installation instructions are wrong
                 Key: COUCHDB-2383
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-2383
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
          Components: Documentation
            Reporter: Dale Harvey


As someone who doesnt build couchdb a lot, when I do it is fustrating

I visited http://couchdb.apache.org/, clicked contribute, there was a huge wall of text, I
think the calls to action should be clearer. I found "Git workflow" but it links to an empty
wiki page, I then decided to go back and through the documentation, I found http://docs.couchdb.org/en/1.6.1/install/mac.html,
the dependencies are wrong, there is little information on installing from source.

I then took a look at https://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/master/INSTALL.Unix, it also
had the wrong dependencies and no mention of how to start a dev cluster (./configure &&
make && python2 dev/run)
