Subject CouchDB 2.0 blog series
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2016 20:07:22 GMT
Hello there!  
  
We’re getting closer to releasing CouchDB 2.0 and leading up to its official
release, we want to publish a series of blog posts examining topics like the
history of the project, differences between the 2.0 and 1.0 architecture,
unpacking the new features, and so forth.  
  
To accomplish this **we need your help**, we need 7-8 CouchDB users to help
write these posts. Don’t worry, we’re not after Shakespeare here, just
introducing an idea in 200-300 words, to get folks interested in CouchDB 2.0.
I’ll be available to help with editing and coordinating the publication
schedule.  
  
Ideally, we’ll be able to release two posts a week, one on Monday and
Wednesday, with the weekly news still going out on Thursdays, so we’re not
over saturating the blog. Jan Lehnardt has volunteered to kick off the series
next week, with a post on the The Road to CouchDB 2.0 on Monday.  
  
That means we need a volunteer to write one for next Wednesday, July 27. We’re
still tossing around ideas for giving the 7-8 authors of these posts a special
kind of CouchDB swag, if that helps. :)  
  
Below is a list of topics (also important: if you have an idea for a topic you
**don’t see** below, please let us know!):

\- /_config is not available on the cluster, but there is /_node/&lt;fqdn&gt;/
_config/ for your setup needs, make sure you do it on all nodes

unique db names (and add cleanup)
