    Description

      As someone who doesnt build couchdb a lot, when I do it is fustrating

      I visited http://couchdb.apache.org/, clicked contribute, there was a huge wall of text, I think the calls to action should be clearer. I found "Git workflow" but it links to an empty wiki page, I then decided to go back and through the documentation, I found http://docs.couchdb.org/en/1.6.1/install/mac.html, the dependencies are wrong, there is little information on installing from source.

      I then took a look at https://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/master/INSTALL.Unix, it also had the wrong dependencies and no mention of how to start a dev cluster (./configure && make && python2 dev/run)
