A few minutes ago, I added a new section to
How we maintain the server coding guidelines
We are committed to have a single coding style for core MySQL
server. Storage engines, however, may have an own coding style:
Falcon and NDB styles are documented later in this manual.
The server coding style is governed by a group of representatives
from each technical team: Optimiser, Runtime, Replication, Backup
Engines and Maria.
Currently these representatives are:
* Sergey Petrunia -- Optimizer
* Konstantin Osipov - Runtime
* Mats Kindahl - Replication
* Chuck Bell - Backup
* Sergey Vojtovich - Engines
* Guilhem Bichot - Maria.
The group accepts and considers change proposals. Each proposal
must include an implementation strategy, and is first published on
Internals mailing list for a public discussion. When the
discussion is over, the group of representatives holds a vote, and
the change is accepted if it's approved by a simple majority of
the ballots. The submitter of the change request then carries out
In accordance with this new procedure, I welcome you to submit
change requests here, on this list.
In addition, as soon as requests start accumulating, I'll create a
new Forge wiki page where requests, their status, and other
style-related discussions will be documented.
