My (few) readers are probably somewhat tired of boring topics of metadata locks and gdb breakpoints that I discuss a lot this year, so for this weekend I decided to concentrate on something less technical but still important to me - the way I prefer to follow while providing support for MySQL.

+3 Vote Up -0Vote Down

This was a feature some MySQL Support customers missed after the migration to MOS. Thanks to feedback from MySQL Support customers and others with similar needs, this feature has now been implemented.
