Update on Planet for the MySQL Community (June 7, 2020)

Three weeks ago, I released the Pluto Beta of Planet for the MySQL Community.  Since then, a few things changed and I think it is worth doing an update to the Ecosystem.  The change I am the most happy about is that Ivan Groenewold started helping with the project (you can find him in the people of the oursqlcommunity.org GitHub organization).  So Planet for the MySQL Community is not a one-man

Planet [for the] MySQL Community: Pluto Beta

As indicated in a previous post, I am working on Planet [for the] MySQL Community for which I did a RFC on the Requirements.  I am happy to announce the beta release of Planet [for the] MySQL Community using the Planet Pluto Free Feed Reader and (Static) Website Generator.  If you are in a hurry, you can check it out at https://planet-beta-pluto.oursqlcommunity.org/.  This post describes how I

Planet MySQL Community: Requirements RFC

As indicated in a previous post, I am working on a Planet MySQL Community (this name is not final, see below).  In this post, I want to present what I think the requirements should be for this new aggregator.  This is a Request for Comment (RFC): I do not claim completeness nor perfection, this might (will) evolve, and your remarks are welcome.  A tl&dr is available in the Summary of Requirements

Planning for the AFTER Planet MySQL (bis)

Oups, my previous post had a forbidden word and did not show-up on Planet MySQL, so retry...

As written in a previous post, the state of Planet MySQL is unhealthy !  I am still aggregated there for now as, before leaving what was the best news-feed for the MySQL Community, we need a replacement.  This post aims at starting a discussion on this replacement.

Update 2020-05-12: I wrote a follow-up

State of Planet MySQL: unhealthy !

Also, the state of bugs.mysql.com: unhealthy (last paragraph below, but this would be too long a title).

I have been complaining for some time about Planet MySQL filtering content that I think it should not.  Shlomi made a courageous decision on this and explained it in his recent post (Pulling his blog out of Planet MySQL aggregator, over community concerns).  I am thinking of doing the same. 

New MySQL Online Training

Oracle University recently unveiled a new online training offering – the MySQL Learning Subscription.  The combination of freely-accessible and compelling paid content makes this an exciting development to me, and should prove valuable to the community and customer base alike.  This post will briefly explore this new MySQL educational resource.

Organization

The subscription content is organized into topical “channels”.  Current top-level channels are:

  • Getting Started
  • Development
  • Administration
  • Security

These channels have sub-channels as well – for example, the Getting Started channel includes Getting Started With MySQL New Features and MySQL For Beginners, …

SYS Schema: Simplified Access To SSL/TLS Details

A while back, I wrote a blog post explaining how PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA improvements in MySQL Server 5.7 provides new visibility into the SSL/TLS status of each running client configuration.  An excellent recent post from Frederic Descamps at Percona covers similar territory.  Both of us use PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA tables directly – a powerful interface, but one that requires a query joining multiple tables.  Thanks to the excellent work of Mark Leith, and a contribution from Daniël van Eeden, access to this same information is made far easier via the SYS schema.

I overlooked the SYS

Questions about MariaDB’s bug system

MariaDB recently announced the migration of the JIRA bug tracking system from the current Atlassian-hosted instance to a self-hosted installation to be found at jira.mariadb.org.    This likely isn’t a big deal to the community, and MariaDB is being very proactive in coordinating this change in the community – but it’s an opportunity for me to ask a few questions regarding MariaDB’s JIRA usage to which I can’t find answers.  I certainly welcome answers, feedback or clarification from MariaDB staff.

Before getting started, I should say that I appreciate MariaDB – the product, the company, the staff and the foundation.  MariaDB/SkySQL/Monty Programs serve a unique and useful purpose for community, users and staff who prefer …

Simplified SSL/TLS Setup for MySQL Community

Transport Layer Security (TLS, also often referred to as SSL) is an important component of a secure MySQL deployment, but the complexities of properly generating the necessary key material and configuring the server dissuaded many users from completing this task.  MySQL Server 5.7 simplifies this task for both Enterprise and Community users. …

Simplified SSL/TLS Setup for MySQL Community

Transport Layer Security (TLS, also often referred to as SSL) is an important component of a secure MySQL deployment, but the complexities of properly generating the necessary key material and configuring the server dissuaded many users from completing this task.  MySQL Server 5.7 simplifies this task for both Enterprise and Community users.  Previous blog posts have detailed the changes supporting Enterprise builds; this blog post will focus on parallel improvements made to MySQL Community builds.
