Hi Lynnette,

thanks a lot for writing this an your efforts. That's really awesome! And
... warm welcome to the CouchDB community.

As I have written before - I have not seen this before. Unfortunately I
have an important appointment starting in the next 10 minutes. So as there
is my name also in the email, I would really like to ask you to wait some
hours till I am back. I do have some questions ...

Again - this is awesome and I really don't want to block it.

Till later

Cheers

Andy
