Subject Re: Fw: Apache CouchDB 2.0 beta annc. Nov 17
Date Thu, 13 Nov 2014 22:20:25 GMT
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
