Subject Re: Removal of ibmcom/couchdb3 preview image
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2020 17:34:14 GMT
Thanks Joan for raising this,

I’m throwing in an extra “this is bad” because of the version number. 3.0 is not a thing
yet and we have brought that up with several IBMers that calling anything intermediate “CouchDB3”
(this is isn’t the first time) is problematic in the CouchDB Slack.

Y’all need to do better. Is suggest the removal of this image blocks the 3.0.0 release,
to make sure nobody gets the wrong bits.
