Hi Lynnette and Sally,
I have hoped, that others answer first to the press release draft and to the question about
possible appointments with reporters. As I have stated before, I don't feel ready to give
an interview because we do not have consolidated info about what we will answer about CouchDB
2.0. Or I should better say, I am not ready. 

Sorry that this sounds a bit like a blocker from my side but I am not willing to give interviews
with the fear that there are to many questions I am not able to answer.

Thanks so much to both of you for all your efforts. I think we need a bit more time here.

All the best

Andy

Thanks Sally,



I haven't heard back from Andy, Lena, Noah or Jan, regarding their availability, so nothing
is booked yet. I'll wait to send the release until something is confirmed, so we do have a
bit more time in case feedback comes through (of course, either way, I'll reiterate to the
InfoWorld team that the release is still in rough draft form).



Once we have a time nailed down, I'll let you know. If you're available and interested, please
feel free (but not obligated) to join.



I'll keep you posted!



Best,

Lynnette

Hello, Lynette, et al.



Just arrived to find my connectivity is out in the office due to construction next door, so
I'll keep it short.



No further feedback received from the PMC regarding the press release, so if we must forward
the draft to the InfoWorld team, please do so underscoring that this is a _rough draft_ that
is likely to undergo additional revisions between our briefing them and going live on Monday.



Having said that, is the briefing confirmed? If so, who will be on the call? (not imposing
myself on anyone, more of a curiosity).



Thanks again for your help. I look forward to hearing from you!



-Sally

Thanks for the background information, Lynette.



No worries. I head marketing & publicity for the ASF and am usually not involved with
project-specific activities unless it involves a major milestone.



So there's nothing out of alignment here. We certainly appreciate your efforts!



Chat soon,

 Sally

Ah, I didn't realize! Sorry, Sally.



For some brief background, we pitched reporters that Cloudant has existing relationships with
(namely, reporters we pitched for our own Cloudant Local announcement) in order to pre-brief
them so their stories could be published ASAP after the CouchDB 2.0 announcement at ApacheCon.



I ran the pitch draft by the community (on the marketing@ list) and received feedback and
answered Andy's questions.



Again, apologies for not including you in the initial emails.



Thanks,

Lynnette

We'll sort it out. And I'll be in touch when I'm back in the office later today.

Hi Sally,



Sorry for any confusion! I had brought up the plan to pitch (and shared the pitch) on a marketing@
thread.



I certainly won't share anything until I hear back from you. The folks from InfoWorld who
expressed interest were Serder Yegulalp and Doug Dinely.



Thanks,

Lynnette

I had no idea we were pitching under embargo. Whom are we speaking with --is it Paul Krill?



Chat soon,

+ traveling today; wheels up shortly, so responses may be delayed.

Hey folks,



Just received our first pitch response from the reporters at InfoWorld.



Can you provide me your availability (and time zones) for tomorrow? Since this interview will
be spanning 3 times zones, I'll do my best to schedule the time that works for the majority.



@Sally — Is the release is any shape to be shared. Of course, it will be under embargo and
I'll reiterate that it's still a draft.



Thanks,

Lynnette

Hi there- I'd be interested in nailing down a time to talk in the next couple of days. Is
anything free on Friday? I'm on the East Coast, but Doug is in San Francisco, so we'd need
to coordinate an appropriate time. (Also, in the interim, is it possible to see an embargoed
release for CouchDB 2.0?)

Hi Eric, Doug and Serder,



Hope all is well! I was recently in touch about Cloudant Local, a new on-premises DBaaS solution
from IBM Cloudant. Now, I’d like to introduce you to Noah Slater, Lena Reinhard, and Andy
Wenk, our friends at the Apache CouchDB™ project.



On November 17 at ApacheCon Europe, the CouchDB community will announce a developer preview
release of CouchDB 2.0. The beta software adds improved database server clustering to the
open source NoSQL database, making it easier to replicate data across different infrastructure
and synchronize changes to multiple copies of that data at large scale.



As Cloudant has grown as a company, so has our commitment to Apache CouchDB [1], [2], [3].
Now, as part of IBM, we plan to grow that commitment further [4], as CouchDB-style database
replication becomes a key piece of IBM’s cloud data management strategy [5].



Lena, Andy, and Noah would be happy to speak with you or introduce you to additional members
of the CouchDB community, including VP of Apache CouchDB Jan Lehnardt. Please let us know
if you’d like to find a time to connect with Jan and the CouchDB community.



Thanks,

Lynnette
