FOSDEM 2019 – Percona Presentations

For those not familiar with it, FOSDEM is an amazing, free entry, full on celebration of open source that takes place in Brussels, Belgium every year. This year the event was held over the first weekend of February. Fringe events, such as the Pre-FOSDEM MySQL day hosted by Oracle MySQL, and the community dinner that follows, provide an opportunity to network.

In case you didn’t make it to FOSDEM this year, here are links to Percona’s presentations from the event. Organizers video and share online every talk from every dev room, a phenomenal achievement in itself. All credit to the volunteers who run this show.

On my Favorite FOSDEM 2019 MySQL, MariaDB and Friends Devroom Talks

This year I had not only spoken about MySQL bugs reporting at FOSDEM, but spent almost the entire day listening at MySQL, MariaDB and Friends Devroom. I missed only one talk, on ProxySQL, (to get some water, drink a bottle of famous Belgian beer and chat with my former colleague in MySQL support team, Geert, whom I had not seen for a decade). So, for the first time out of my 4 FOSDEM visits I've got a first hand impression about the entire set of talks in the devroom that I want to share today, while I still remember my feelings.

Most of the talks have both slides and videos …

Fun with Bugs #76 - On MySQL Bug Reports I am Subscribed to, Part XIII

Holidays season is almost over here, so it's time to get back to my main topic of MySQL bugs. Proper MySQL bug reporting will be a topic of my FOSDEM 2019 talk in less than 4 weeks (and few slides with recent examples of bugs are not yet ready), so I have to concentrate on bugs.

Last time in this series I reviewed some interesting bug reports filed in November, 2018. Time to move on and proceed with bugs reported in December, 2018, as I've subscribed to 27 or so of them. As usual, I'll review them briefly starting from the oldest and try to check if MariaDB 10.3 is also affected when the bug report is about common features:
