I understand, and raised the issue when renaming came up (in early 2013.) But the product
marketing folks’ priorities are Couchbase customers and potential customers, rather than
the smaller set of people who already knew about TouchDB.

Apology accepted, and that’s a great idea. Maybe there could be a collection of pages about
the various databases in the CouchDB ecosystem, including PouchDB, Cloudant’s server, and
Cloudant’s new mobile library (which is a fork of TouchDB.)

Right now we’re nearing code-freeze for Couchbase Lite 1.0, so I’m a bit busy, but I’ll
make a note to do this soon.
