Subject Debian/Ubuntu 2.0 packages - beta test ready!
Date Sun, 23 Apr 2017 07:45:14 GMT
Hello everyone,

Time for more great news - Debian & Ubuntu couchdb 2.0.0 packages are
ready for BETA testing. These packages support full auto-configuration
and upgrades from CouchDB 1.x.

*Developers*: Please see https://github.com/apache/couchdb-pkg/pull/4 for
the nitty gritty details.

*Users*: Would you like to test these CouchDB packages? Here's how!

1. Add this *TEMPORARY* repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file.
There is support for Debian 8 (jessie), Ubuntu 12.04 (precise), Ubuntu
14.04 (trusty) and Ubuntu 16.04 (xenial). Add only the appropriate line
from below for your distribution:

  deb https://atypical.net/couchdb-pkg/jessie /
  deb https://atypical.net/couchdb-pkg/precise /
  deb https://atypical.net/couchdb-pkg/trusty /
  deb https://atypical.net/couchdb-pkg/xenial /

2. Run:

  # apt-get update

3. Run:

  # apt-get install couchdb

and be sure to answer yes when prompted to install packages from an
untrusted source.

If you want to be 100% sure you install the 2.0.0 version, you can run:

  # apt-get install couchdb=2.0.0-1

4. Answer the questions when prompted.

5. Relax! CouchDB is running and ready for your data. Optionally, if
you upgraded from the couchdb 1.x packages, use /opt/couchdb/bin/couchup
to upgrade your databases. The tool has plenty of built-in --help at
your disposal.

Pre-seeding
-----------
If you are curious about pre-seeding answers to these questions for
automation purposes (e.g. chef/puppet/ansible/debian-installer), see:

  https://github.com/apache/couchdb-pkg/blob/debian_2.0/debian/README.Debian


NOTE
====
The temporary repository will be removed by 2017-05-01, or once an
official repository becomes available. The location of the official
repository has not yet been decided.

*** DO NOT USE THE TEST REPOSITORY FOR PRODUCTION PURPOSES! ***
Only tears will result.


Looking forward to your feedback!
Joan
