    Description

      in http://docs.couchdb.org/en/1.6.1/intro/security.html
      the paragraph: "1.6.2. Authentication Database" is very hard to read, because of the English errors. To name a few:

      Users may only access (GET /_users/org.couchdb.user:Jan) or modify (PUT /_users/org.couchdb.user:Jan) documents that they owns

      you cannot rename existed user (besides not being very English IMHO it's not clear what does it mean: Can one delete and then create a user using a username that previously existed, but was deleted?)

      array of string

      CouchDB doesn’t provides any builtin roles

      any custom fields that are relates to the target user.

      etc...
