Brainstorm: A new CouchDB tag-line? (see thread)
Let’s cut a Nano release (see thread)
Last month Nuno Job and Pedro Teixeira and the YLD.io team donated the Nano client to the ASF. The official release has not been completed due to a few remaining issues and open questions, that were kindly summarised by Jason Smith.
The discussion tackles on updating the README of the ‘dscape-repo’ on Github to point to the ASF project and, furthermore, transferring the repository to the Apache account. For its release via npm or other package managers an official voting might be required.

- “If you are an open source project maintainer, give this a shot. Add the label first-timers-only to your project so people can find it here. I think that we can be more friendly to newcomers in the open source community. You never know, you may find a new main contributor to the project or even a new life-long friend. Either way, the more people we get into open source the better. And by being open like this, we’re helping ‘Bring Kindness back to Open Source.’” – First Timers Only – A suggestion to Open Source project maintainers…
