Subject Re: Mac OS install of couchdb via homebrew is failing
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 19:02:39 GMT

I think this should be enough;

    brew remove --force nspr spidermonkey

and then re-try the brew again.

CouchDBX needs a little bit of concerted love, I think we have all the
people with all the pieces ready just not in sync yet!
