There is nothing to worry about for Daevid anyway, as he is an
Enterprise customer - and hence will still have direct access to the tar
balls from the source anyway, via enterprise.mysql.com..
We will not be removing these source tar balls completely, only from
public access via our FTP. Enterprise customers still have (and will
always have) access to the source tar balls, we have no plans of
changing this at all.
In any case, distributing MySQL on an appliance that is being sold would
require commercial binaries, not GPL binaries, as I understand.
