CouchDB Weekly Meeting (see summary)
- CouchDB 2.0 status: Benchmark test suite results needed – measurement tools, e.g. work2, tsung, locust.io, will be further investigated. CORS support for chttpd is merged. Some performance issues were tackled.
- Open floor: ApacheCon EU (divided into Core and Big Data) – Call for Speakers is open and a strong CouchDB presence planned, ideally with a full-day CouchDB track to especially address 2.0 and big data!
- L10N: The publication of the docs translations is planned to be pursued to encourage the work on translations and give them clear place and goal in the docs. The RTD (Read the docs) service, where docs are hosted, now has support for localization, which will be inspected.
[DISCUSSION] nmo to the ASF (see thread)
nmo (speaks: nemo) – a tool to manage CouchDB clusters was written as part of COUCHDB-2598 and is discussed for an official donation to the ASF, so it could be shipped as an addition with the next CouchDB release.
[PROPOSAL] GitHub issues (see thread)
It was proposed to additionally enable GitHub issues for GitHub repos to make contributing to CouchDB easier and attract more contributors. In terms of implementation, JIRA remains main system of records, while it was discussed having GH issues parallelly mirroring JIRA issues and comments.
FAUXTON 1.0.3 RELEASED (see thread)
Fauxton 1.0.3 (modular CouchDB dashboard and Futon replacement) with several fixes and improvements for example: IndexResults, a header-controller reset and display of error message with index creation.

Time to relax!
- “When an organization is explicitly presented as meritocratic, individuals in managerial positions favor a male employee over an equally qualified female employee by awarding him a larger monetary reward. This finding demonstrates that the pursuit of meritocracy at the workplace may be more difficult than it first appears and that there may be unrecognized risks behind certain organizational efforts used to reward merit.” – The Paradox of Meritocracy in Organizations
- “1. Almost all the successful microservice stories have started with a monolith that got too big and was broken up. 2. Almost all the cases where I’ve heard of a system that was built as a microservice system from scratch, it has ended up in serious trouble.” – MonolithFirst
- “In this talk from Codemania 2015, I explore the benefits and practical applications of immutable data beyond concurrency in both object-oriented and functional programming, from individual immutable fields up to system-level immutability.” – Enjoy Yourself Because You Can’t Change Anything Anyway: Immutable Data in the Real World, Kelsey Gilmore-Innis
- “It’s got a lot better value for money in the last year, so we’ve gone from “dipping our toes in the water” to “ORDER EVERYTHING WITH SSDs!” pretty rapidly. […] We should probably collect some real data on this as an industry and share it around; I’ve always been of the mindset that we’re weirdly secretive sometimes of what hardware/software we use but we should share” – SSDs: A gift and a curse
- “Women once dominated the world of coding. One of the first software businesses in the U.S., CompInc., was founded in 1958 by a woman, Elsie Shutt, who hired female programmers.” – How Gender Stereotyping Impacts Women in STEM
