## Description:

- A database with aeamless multi-master sync, that scales from Big Data
  to Mobile, with an Intuitive HTTP/JSON API and designed for Reliability.
## Issues:

 - there are no issues requiring board attention at this time.
## Activity:

 - As per trademarks@, “CouchDB” is now a USPTO registered trademark.
   The project thanks Shane Curcuru for his perseverance in getting this
 - The severe CVEs reported in the last report are in the news again this
   month, as hackers are using it to install cryptocurrency miners. From
   a project perspective, there isn’t much more we could do to reach out
   to users (short of scanning the internet ourselves), but we continue
   to discuss better community engagement strategies, so more users do
   update in case of severe security issues (however futile the situation,
   we’re still hopeful we can improve).
 - Clarified PR-merge policy after an (in the end harmless) incident that
   saw a seemingly semver-major change hit master where two employees from
   a single contributing employer proposed and approved a PR. We now wait
   72 hours for semver-major PRs hitting master or release branches.

## Health report:

 - CouchDB issue #745 is currently binding most of the project’s resources,
   and impacts a number of higher-profiler users. Progress is steady, but
   slow. A new release is planned with the future fix, which will also
   address a number of issues left after the last 2.1.1 release.
