The upstream view
Package maintenance as seen from MySQL Engineering
Norvald H. Ryeng
Norvald H. Ryeng has been working as a software engineer on the MySQL
Optimizer Team since 2011. He is also the point of contact for package
maintainers in Linux distributions. He holds a PhD in Computer Science
from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
MySQL is the world's most popular open source DBMS, with a large user
base on Linux, Windows, OS X, FreeBSD, Solaris, and others. At Oracle
we work with package maintainers in several Linux distros to deliver
high quality packages both in the distros and in our own repositories.
This talk focuses on how it is to be a fairly large project upstream
of several Linux distros. This includes handling differences between
distros, request for new functionality in stable releases, etc.
