In my previous summary blog post I listed 5 problems
I see with the way Oracle handles MySQL server development. The
first of them was that "Oracle does not develop MySQL server
in a true open source way" and this is actually what I
started my draft of that entire blog post with. Now it's time to
get into details, as so far there was mostly fun around this and
statements that MariaDB also could do better in the related
Twitter discussion I had.
So, let me explain what forces me to think that Oracle is treating MySQL somewhat wrong for the open source product.
