Subject Re: CouchDB 2.0 Media Intro/Pitch
Date Wed, 12 Nov 2014 16:52:05 GMT
Hi Andy,

Sorry for any confusion! I was preparing to send the pitch out to run it by
the community, and should have included some more details in my original
email. The pitch is pasted below (we've plugged some place holder names in,
but I can add or remove as needed).

In advance of the announcement, we planned on reaching out to reporters
that we (Cloudant) have existing relationships with to offer them
interviews with Apache community members to talk about the CouchDB 2.0
release. We pre-pitch so that reporters have the opportunity to get their
quotes and stories together so they can publish as soon after the
announcement as possible.

The pitch would come from me, and would be an introduction to members of
the community (whoever is interested in being copied/speaking with media).

Please let me know if you have any questions.


SUBJ: Apache CouchDB 2.0 beta annc. Nov 17

Hi __________,

I was recently in touch about Cloudant Local, a new on-premises DBaaS
solution from IBM Cloudant. Now, I’d like to introduce you to Noah Slater,
Lena Reinhard, and Andy Wenk, our friends at the Apache CouchDB™ project.

On November 17 at ApacheCon Europe, the CouchDB community will announce a
developer preview release of CouchDB 2.0. The beta software adds improved
database server clustering to the open source NoSQL database, making it
easier to replicate data across different infrastructure and synchronize
changes to multiple copies of that data at large scale.

As Cloudant has grown as a company, so has our commitment to Apache CouchDB
[1], [2], [3]. Now, as part of IBM, we plan to grow that commitment further
[4], as CouchDB-style database replication becomes a key piece of IBM’s
cloud data management strategy [5].

Lena, Andy, and Noah would be happy to introduce you to members of the
CouchDB community, including VP of Apache CouchDB Jan Lehnardt. Please let
us know if you’d like to find a time to connect with Jan and the CouchDB

Hi Lynnette,

erm I have the feeling that I miss something here. What is this? Has this
been discussed here or with the community? Is this a paper? I am totally
blind here ...

Before anything will be sent out in the name of Apache CouchDB community, I
would really like to see what you are sending.

Thanks for a quick clarification.
