Go Query Yourself! The MySQL 5 Challenge!
To assist the MySQL 5.0 QA process, MySQL AB is looking for as many users as
possible to test 5.0 in general, and specifically key features such as
stored procedures, views, triggers. See this article for details.
There will be cool MySQL goodies (T-shirts, mugs, books) for users who
are the most helpful either directly with 5.0 testing, or indirectly by
informing other users about 5.0. For instance:
The best or most (5.0 feature related) bug reports at bugs.mysql.com
The most helpful people on related MySQL forums at forums.mysql.com
The best MySQL 5.0 related articles (magazine or online) or dedicated web site
The most informational/inspiring blog entries on MySQL 5.0 topics.
All bugs reported, articles published, etc by July 30th
(note: this date has no relation to the 5.0 release schedule.)
All winners announced at the sole discretion of MySQL AB.
Arjen Lentz (Community Relations Manager) and
Brian Aker (Director of Architecture) will be among the judges.
Go for it! And good luck.
