Cloudant's BigCouch and Apache CouchDB... the merge that took a while

The two merged thousands of lines of Erlang to update Apache CouchDB with the modifications Cloudant has made to its core database software. These changes lay the groundwork for preparing the Apache community to improve CouchDB performance at large scale.

I don’t remember when was the first time I’ve heard about BigCouch being contributed to the Apache CouchDB project. I do remember though that, at that time, I actually believed it, as it made sense: Cloudant was still in its early days, seeking validation of its solution, and CouchDB was at its peak.

It’s been so long that I totally forgot about it. But now I’m starting to believe it again. Just as much as a GitHub branch.
