Hi Akshat,

first of all thank you very much for doing the interview. I am really
looking forward for other interviews as well.

I think this is very raw now. In my opinion, this should now be put into an
article form with some introduction concerning the motivation to do these
interviews. If the text is ready I am happy to review it. But we should
make sure that Benoit will acknowledge the article and then a native
english speaking person should copy edit it as well.

What do you think about this process? What do the others think?

I would give the article a "CouchDB Interview series No. 1 - Benoit
Chesneau" title or sth. like this. The Blog is a good place to post it then.

Thanks and Cheers

Andy
