Thanks a lot Sir!
1) I am checking out what you said : lp:mysql-server
I dont understand still why 6.0 is not the latest version.
I find in the launchpad site upon hovering over the links :
on 5.5 it says : Development Focus Series
6.0 it says : Active Developement Series
5.1 it says : Pre-release Freeze Series.
But 5.1 is more advanced/latest than 5.5 or 6.0. Right?
2) Yes Sir, it was a network error. I realised, am behind our College Squid-Proxy with
not sufficient privileges to checkout from the repository. And I did try configuring
bazaar.conf as mentioned in a forum, but no-luck.
So, I requested our Systems Dept to allow me to do the same from their lab, which is what
i am doing now, connecting directly to internet. Is their any other way that i can go
about instead of coming here for every update or commit.
3) Why arent the source downloads in MySQL site updated with those from the
4) Also, is there a better way to manage development using any IDE like Sun Studio 12.1,
NetBeans or Anjuta? Wherein IDEs like first two allow us with checkout, update and commit
facilities with the repository.
Just curious to know how MySQL Developers develop!

6.0 is not really the latest source now.
I recommend checking this out instead:
In a nutshell, it is 5.1 plus recently added features (Performance Schema, InnoDB plugin,

Looks like a network error. See if
ping edge.launchpad.net works.
If it does, network is working, retry your bzr command.

There are tarballs but they are months older than the latest available with bzr; they are
You should really try to make bzr work, if you want the latest.
