We at TCX are against SPAM in all context, except when you have
explicitly asked for it. To be listed on the MySQL pages are not a
request for MySQL related SPAM.
I think however that if anyone has a product that uses MySQL, they should
allowed to send a mail to mysql@stripped to announce it. They can also
send a mail to announce@stripped and we at TCX will decide if
we should accept this for the announce list; I think that all new
MySQL related products should be allowed to post at least once on the
We are always willing to put up visible links on www.mysql.com to all
products that are sold with a MySQL license :)
