Here's my first attempt at getting this packaged up:

I currently have it installing into /usr/local/couchdb. Unfortunately, the binaries have to be executed from /usr/local/couchdb/bin, which isn't ideal. I'm mentioning it because I'd like to document this somewhere, so that people know how to start CouchDB once they've installed the package, but I haven't been able to find a good place to communicate this. What's the recommended practice in this case?

@lyudmil You should be creating a separate task as a subtask of the request for patch submissions.

As far as the initial patch goes:

  1. Nothing in a package should ever get installed into /usr/local
  2. You should be using the %configure macro instead of ./configure
  3. This will need a .service file, tmpfiles.d file, and sysusers.d file for systemd

@DataDrake, I'll work on this further and create a separate task what it's ready.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
