Actually we are returning to my original post. We don't know how long
it might take, because we have no plan. We just have thousands of
mails flying around. My suggestion is that we work on the plan, the
requirements and try to get this experiment done.

2 Phonegap devs have subscribed already to the couchdb dev list. It
would be cool if you have some cycles too to support the coach people
with the experiment. Then we are already 5 supporters (counting in
Ross and myself).

Once we have had the initial discussions we have a better clue about
how many problems we have to solve and can estimate how long it will
take (or say it will take longer than 1 year or something) ?
