Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache CouchDB 2.1.1-RC2

Actually...we have *multiple* CI pipelines that run on every check-in across multiple versions
of Erlang and multiple operating systems: 

Travis CI: 
Jenkins CI: 

Those CI pipelines also have status badges on our main GitHub repo: 

So yes, we are doing lots of automated testing, and it is a Very Good Thing for our project.

However, the Apache Software Foundation *official* release policy is more involved and *mandates*
human involvement in the form of a vote: 

Here are CouchDB's specific policies and procedures on releases, which outline the specific
kinds of testing we require from our committers before voting on a release candidate:

Quick question: it looks like everyone is testing the release manually. Have you all considered
setting up something like a CI env that uses vagrant to spin up different VMs and test everything
in an automated fashion? Sorry, if I am oversimplifying this :)

Tested on Debian jessie, x86_64 - Erlang/JS test suites and Fauxton smoke tests pass. 

Will check Windows later today.
