Recently I’ve been making more modifications to the MySQL source. Part of making modifications is testing them. For years I’ve been curious why there are both tests and mysql-test sub directories in the source tarballs. Arjen Lentz tells me that tests is old and that mysql-test is the current testing framework. This makes sense since the manual testing pages are all about mysql-test.
Are there plans to clean up the remnants of the old testing framework? What else is there in the tarball that’s outdated and needs to be removed?
