Actually, we do require an SCA for any kind of code contribution, regardless
of its size (except for simple typo fixes, that is).
So before we can handle, review and absorb your code into the main development
branches for MySQL or in updates on existing releases, etc., it is required
that you sign the "Sun Contributor Agreement".
Under the Sun Contributor Agreement (SCA), the contributor retains copyrights
while also granting those same rights to Sun as the project sponsor. It
supersedes the previously used MySQL Contributor License Agreement (CLA).
You can get a copy of the SCA document here:
Once you sign and send your copy of the SCA document as described here:
your signatory status will be reflected, along with your interest in
contributing to MySQL, here:
Having a clear SCA status will enable and facilitate the review and
interaction regarding your code contributions to MySQL (as well as to any
other Sun-managed Open-Source project).
Please let me know if you have any questions about this. Thanks!
