We have a new wiki. The migration is not 100% complete. You can help out by moving pages across. This wiki will exist for as long as there are pages left.

The official documentation has moved to http://docs.couchdb.org — The transition is not 100% complete, but http://docs.couchdb.org should be seen as having the latest info. In some cases, the wiki still has some more or older info on certain topics inside CouchDB.

You need to be added to the ContributorsGroup to edit the wiki. But don't worry! Just email any Mailing List or grab us on IRC and let us know your user name.

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.

Admin Resources

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.

Compile stats

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.

Share the Report Draft

Send an REQUEST email to the dev list, with a link to the draft report.

The notice email template can be found here:
