stable

PPA description

Stable releases of http://couchdb.apache.org/ maintained and provided by the CouchDB project and community, based on the officially released tarballs.

Installation should be straightforward, usual caveats around making backup before upgrading precautions apply, noting that between CouchDB 1.0.1 and 1.5.0 there are a number of key changes, including the on-disk data format used by the .couch files was upgraded. Although it *should* keep your dbs intact and do the right thing for your local.ini files, always have a backup - or two!
