Hi Robert,

thanks for taking the lead on this.

We don’t really need a date, we just need to do the release :)

Not quite for me*:

Current master is always built and published into

For to-be-voted-on release-candidate, feel free to take the latest tarball there and untar,
rename the resulting directory into apache-couchdb-x.y.z and tar up again.

This all is built on — if you sign up, tell me when you’ve
done so, and I can give you admin rights. — The Mac binary is also built there automatically.

Note that is different from the run by the ASF, which we
_should_ use, but haven’t gotten around to yet. This is where the bus factor comes into
play, as this is my private Jenkins, which we’ve always planned to retire, but since we’ve
never fully integrated the infra into our processes, that hasn’t happened
yet. This is something we should focus on too, but it doesn’t have to hold the release.

Great! :)

Let me know if you have any other questions.
