Results of the 2016 Apache CouchDB Survey
The responses from the 2016 survey on CouchDB have been collected and sorted and you can review the executive summary of responses, as well as the raw collected data. Many thanks to Simone Haas and Jan Lehnardt for their fantastic work on this!
On dependency management and CI issues associated with it (see thread)
In this discussion Ilya Khlopotov has suggested some potential changes to the workflow to account for CI failures and other issues with outdated dependencies. Other folks have chimed in with responses so it’s a thread worth reviewing.
[Proposal] Change etag calculation (see thread)
Garren Smith is proposing that the etag is generated from the body of the response (typically the document), _rev and attachments for consistency and to account for the fact that the etag would change when a document has changed.
