Hi Efraim,

we can probably unbundle fontawesome, but not their own font. The web frontend
(fauxton) depends on NPM and a bunch of JavaScript packages – nothing we can do
about that.

As far as I see there is a mix between bundled external libraries and those
internal to couchdb. External libraries in src/ are:

- bear (
- dreyfus (
- folsom (
- hyper (
- jiffy (
- meck (
- mochiweb (
- proper (
- rebar (
- recon (
- snappy (

All modules are also mirrored by the Apache project here
so it might be possible to build most of them “out of tree”, i.e. create
separate packages and somehow “link” to them. I’ll look into that when I have
some time, but I’m not an Erlang guru. In the meantime I’ll be maintaining the
package over here[1], since the current state is not good enough for inclusion
into guix.

Yep, I can confirm the server and web interface are working.

Thanks for the review,
