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.

The CouchDB source code can be found in the Subversion repository, which can also be browsed online.

You can check out the code using the svn command:

    svn co http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/couchdb/trunk couchdb

Committers should use the secure repository:

    svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/couchdb/trunk couchdb
