Hey Andy,

Thanks! And yes, we can definitely wait for your questions before sending
out. That will also give the rest of the community a chance to comment in
the meantime.

It would be great to get these emails out no later than tomorrow morning US
Eastern time.

Thanks,
Lynnette

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

  Hi Andy,

  Sorry for any confusion! I was preparing to send the pitch out to run it
  by the community, and should have included some more details in my
  original email. The pitch is pasted below (we've plugged some place
  holder names in, but I can add or remove as needed).

  In advance of the announcement, we planned on reaching out to reporters
  that we (Cloudant) have existing relationships with to offer them
  interviews with Apache community members to talk about the CouchDB 2.0
  release. We pre-pitch so that reporters have the opportunity to get their
  quotes and stories together so they can publish as soon after the
  announcement as possible.

  The pitch would come from me, and would be an introduction to members of
  the community (whoever is interested in being copied/speaking with
  media).

  Please let me know if you have any questions.

  Thanks,
  Lynnette

  SUBJ: Apache CouchDB 2.0 beta annc. Nov 17



  Hi __________,



  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 introduce you to 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

  Hi Lynnette,

  erm I have the feeling that I miss something here. What is this? Has this
  been discussed here or with the community? Is this a paper? I am totally
  blind here ...

  Before anything will be sent out in the name of Apache CouchDB community,
  I
  would really like to see what you are sending.

  Thanks for a quick clarification.

  Cheers

  Andy
