The issues with the transfer were with the transferring end
(failing to approve the transfer in a timely manner, WHOIS record
issues) not with ASF infra.

I'll repeat. This needs to be transferred to the ASF (via infra) not to
an individual.

The couchdb PMC needs to open a Jira ticket for the transfer (so Infra
knows the couchdb PMC wants to accept this transfer) and the current
owner needs to e-mail the transfer codes to updating the
Jira ticket when that is done.
