I’ve left a number of TODOs in the margins that should be easy to pick up. If you have any
questions, do let me know:

This is now more or less complete*. I fixed one more issue that prevented us from building
CouchDB from within a release tarball and then ran through various setup scenarios:

- Docker’d cluster on Digital Ocean
- Single-node setup locally
- Manual form-source install on three different Digital Ocean VMs, and using the setup Wizard
to form a cluster

…and added instructions for all of them to the doc.

*although it doesn’t cover Windows yet, please help :)

* * *

Please all give this a spin over the holidays, or after and augment the doc where needed (I’ve
switched it to edit suggestions, let me know your Google account when you want full editing

* * *

I’m very happy we all got this far! And personally I had hoped we get this up and running
before the Christmas holidays so we hit a close one here :)

Thanks everyone for all your hard work all year round and enjoy the first round of CouchDB
2.0 alphas! :)
