Re: Summary of discussion about MariaDB future and release plans



We're speaking about different MySQL users when. One I know about would not
mix "trivial" and "bzr command" in the same sentence.  Seriously if you're
looking for mass market adoption you need to look at users not developers.
 You should not expect them to have any experience with bzr or even building

My point is the broader adoption you want the more simple things should be
for people to understand.  I currently see it is not for a lot of people.

Regarding bugs remember MariaDB is not MySQL - In MySQL bugs database I see
the now the notes which change bug fixed in 5.0.55  and separate one 5.1.33,
so I do not really need to try to compare anything here.  With MariaDB  I
need to clearly know MySQL Baseline.
