BigCouch Merge needs you (see thread)

Regarding the merge of BigCouch, everyone was asked to start or continue testing and provide feedback if there were any blockers from merging BigCouch to master (see issue). After the merge, some work will have to be done towards the next release. If there are no more objections or blocking technical issues, the merge is supposed to be done on Thursday, July 10.

Is there a way to replicate n documents from database A to another database B? (see thread)

Answer: You can specify a set of document IDs to replicate. And you can get a set of document IDs from _all_docs?limit=n. You’ll just need to extract the doc IDs from the _all_docs response, and put them into the request to _replicate.
