with a Windows version is much appreciated. Also, the _config endpoint for cluster interface
still needs to be figured out. Potentially using a database for config values. Discussion
(summary below) continues on on dev@.
> Fauxton: Can detect if running on a backdoor port now. The current workflow is risking
users to trigger a compaction in the whole cluster. 2.0 needs to tackle this issue in the
docs. Also, the conversion of the front page from backbone.js to react.js got merged in!

the functionalities of what are CouchApps today, so that they no longer lead to confusion
in the perception of what CouchDB is about. Especially renaming (or potentially take the name
“Couch” from CouchApps) is being discussed as a crucial step to mark a clear distinction,
e.g. in the follow-up thread.

story of getting to know CouchDB and what they have learned about the role and use of CouchApps.
Discussion will continue on the Marketing-ML.
> In the Fauxton team that is using CouchDB 2.0, it has been discussed to remove the config
tap or how to achieve a better way to make configuration work on cluster-wide interfaces and
prevent the unwitting use of config on backdoor ports. Config changes and other solutions
are being discussed for 2.0.

– “I was particularly struck by one group’s concept of a configurable ‘filter’ that
could help make sense of the many annotations across the web, bringing value to different
groups of people. It’s an exciting time to build standards and interoperability so annotations
can communicate with each other.”
