... went to www.mysql.com and failed to find that term, but a search took me to the manual
page - and the very first
thing it said:
2.3.4 Installing from the Development Source Tree
CAUTION: You should read this section only if you are interested in helping us test our
new code. If you just want to
get MySQL up and running on your system, you should use a standard release distribution
(either a source or binary
distribution will do).
Are the documentation files available outside of the developers' arena, for those people
who would like to investigate
without actually downloading (Bitkeeper and) the source code?
