Dave Cottlehuber has a great plan for the Apache CouchDB community to restore confidence and increase mind-share in order to fulfil a great goal:
I’d like to see CouchDB as being the enabler in open data, in breaking open the web for joe & jane user, and enabling interoperability of large data sets especially in research and for government. And an independent replication protocol, with a reference implementation, well supported and documented, is critical to that end - even if the back end isn’t actually CouchDB.
I’ve lost track of how many times I wrote that CouchDB needs clarity in positioning and just a bit of an ecosystem (that includes at least good documentation and a set of recommended libraries and tools).
