Hi Sally,

I just spotted this post on our users ML:
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/couchdb-user/201504.mbox/%3CCAPMhwa4wV3PN6oG0xCjs6V0OM%3DZ3MocXCYM-e19hVcUPK%2Bn%2BOg%40mail.gmail.com%3E

I guess based on that feedback you can work with Giovanni for a complete
and official testimonial.

Let me know if I can help!

Best,
Robert
