Re: MariaDB 5.5.37 release prep


Hey Daniel,

Thanks for getting this started.

Release notes:

> XtraDB updated to the version from percona-server-5.5.36-34.0
> TokuDB updated to version 7.1.5

upgraded from what? What was the previous version? Is there a link of readable changes (not code diffs) that occurred for this? Even including major additions and fixes here as sub-points would be good too as there are core and important parts of MariaDB.

The change log mentions several assertion fixes, memory leaks, and potentially wrong results that should be in the release notes. It should also include major features and improvements, like the audit plugin that you've done, and improved performance in queries.

I think there should be a separate section dealing with packaging errors broken up by platform.

Also change log entries like Revision #4110.1.1 and others mentioning the internal functions of mysql not working in a particular way give really no clue as to the impact is for those not familiar with the code base. Trees of merges in changelog don't actually mean anything substantial to me. Is the audience of the change log the developers that have done the work? or some wider user base of mysql users? If so its not there yet.
