Excellent. Thank you, Jan.
And, moving towards getting the press release out tomorrow, I'm aiming to 
announce at 5AM ET (UTC -4).
I'll let you know when we're live.

Hello Jan and Apache CouchDB marketing team --I trust you are well.
A quick heads-up that I have received confirmation from IBM PR that they will 
be issuing a podcast coming out tomorrow, and a video with their CTO (and 
CouchDB Committer) Adam Kocoloski later this week.
I'll forward the links to you once available. Thanks in advance for helping 
spread the word.

Thanks, Jan.
WRT obtaining names of organizations/users (whether to list on the press 
release or to solicit testimonials), we've had some projects ask on their 
respective dev/user lists.

I’m done with a first pass, but this will need some more work.

For example: do we know of any more bigger names using CouchDB that we could 
list?

The link for the PR is here:

marketing@: any help appreciated <3
