Subject Re: What do we call our Influitive hub?
Date Thu, 10 Apr 2014 19:29:30 GMT
Noah,

I went through all the resources you sent and I am happy to join the
Upholsterer team and help with this experiment :). I understand the idea
behind Influitive and and Advocat Hub. I am very curious if we can get this
to work for CouchDB as an Open Source project.

Let me know where to start ....

And erm sry ... I got no fancy name at this moment :)

Cheers

Andy
