Board Report Guide
CouchDB submits a board report once per quarter.
Our PMC chair is responsible for submitting the report, one week before the board meeting.
Our PMC chair will notify the dev list when it is time to prepare the report.
To prepare the report, follow this guide.
Grab a copy of the admin resources:
git clone http://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf/couchdb-admin.git
Any path in this document that references the "couchdb-admin" directory should be modified to point to this Git clone.
Create a Report Draft
Use the Board Report Template to create a new Board_Report/YYYY_MM page.
Link to this page from the Board Reports page.
To get mailing list subscriber stats, send an email to:
To get message counts, use MarkMail:
If you are reporting for February 2014, for instance, set the date range to: 201311-201402.
You should see a message count in the MarkMail interface.
This is imprecise as a measurement, but it's good enough for the report.
