GSoC 2016 Student Introduction. [ MDEV-4989 ]



I am Mike Reiss a MS Computer Science student and I would love to work on
enhancing the mysqlbinlog tool  during GSoC 2017 [MDEV-4989
<https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-4989>]. I have studied the
mysqlbinlog.cc file and experimented with the various options available in
the my_options array of the tool. The proposed idea is straight forward to
implement: We add the --start-gtid and --stop-gtid options to the array of
options then parse the GTID passed to these options to get the GTID
sequence number for the binlog. One quick question. Is there any
relationship between a GTID sequence number and the argument passed to the
--start-position option? that way we need to set the start position to the
GTID sequence number. I am still doing more research into the source files
and I will love to discuss this more with the mentor. I am having
difficulties debugging mysqlbinlog on OS X sierra because it does not
support GDB any ideas please?
