Hi Bruno,

first of all, thanks for maintaining CouchDB for Arch. Secondly, for any security related questions, please do not hesitate to contact instead of any one of the team individually, as we can’t know if any of is available at all times (vacations and whatnot :)

As for your questions, see this PR to our packaging infrastructure for how we handle this on Debian and Centos/Rocky:

Should Arch make that a default in the systemd service file? For now this has just been a recommandation for single node security since 2017 (, but I can make it the default (the second part of the wiki advice being now an upstream default, I think it would make some sense).
