Subject Re: Docker images migrated to apache/couchdb

We were explicitly instructed *not* to publish a master version by
ASF staff when given access to the apache/couchdb name space. I
don't know what more I can say here without Infra threatening
to take away the apache/couchdb namespace from us.

We were also told that the "official" namespace that Docker
provides (just 'couchdb' which is being updated to the new
apache/couchdb location) can only use official releases from
upstream, see:

"...while bleeding edge betas/RCs/etc that have a unique git
hash reference can be supported, building from master should be
done in a non-official image."

Having a master version available does not seem to break those policies (advertising outside
the development community seems purposefully vague), and if it did then those policies should
be fixed. A master version of CouchDB available for testing with PouchDB would be hugely beneficial,
I imagine for other projects that want to integrate with CouchDB would benefit too

Hello everyone, 

The Docker images that used to live at klaemo/couchdb have 
now been semi-officially replaced by ones at apache/couchdb. 

Tags are present for 1.6.1, 1.6.1-couchperuser, 2.1.0, and 
latest (which is the same as 2.1.0). The 2.1.0 image can be 
used both as a single node, and in a cluster. 

ASF policy prevents us from publishing a "master" version, 
as notated here: 

Sorry for the delay in getting these out the door. 

The next step is to deprecate the klaemo/couchdb image, and 
to have the "official" couchdb image replaced with a pointer 
to the apache/couchdb image.
