Subject Installers for couchdb
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2008 16:37:11 GMT
Howdy:
I am working on couchdb installers that I would like to contribute back to
the project:
A fully functional CouchDb install has a few external dependencies such as:
- ICU (ICU License a BSD/MIT style license)
- Mozilla SpiderMonkey (MPL, GPL or LGPL)  
- Erlang (ERLANG PUBLIC LICENSE)
- Openssl (OpenSSL license, a BSD style license)

My understanding is that it would not be acceptable IP-clearance wise to
have all (though some may be) those bits shipped as part of all-inclusive
installers.

My request:
Would it be acceptable to create installers that would fetch at install time
the required external bits from their original download locations? 
Those fetch operations would be clearly presented as external fetch
operationsto the users.
Cordially
