Thanks, Benoit, I do undestand that.

It's a bit confusing, though, because all the other CouchDB features
mentioned in the previous CouchIO (not CouchOne) home page were in

When many of the core developers in an Open Source project belong to
one company, it is easy to think that the company is driving the

That is not a problem by itself, but it does require very careful
communication between all parties (core developers, contributors and
users), particularly when it comes to the product roadmap if the
company business plan involves having proprietary features, and not
just services build around the product.
