I am so sorry. It should be week 13 report, instead of 12.

I have fixed bugs of TABLE and VIEWS. But new bug is shown.
If run "SELECT * FROM information_schema.TABLES" or "SELECT * FROM
INFOSCHEMA.TABLES" more than 2 times,
MySQL server will crash on "Field::clone". The problem should be issued by
infoschema_discover, which does not set field->ptr right, like
the bug we meet before. But I check infoschema_discover many times, I can't
find what is wrong.

I find out a good idea to do that. I will implement this two - three days.
For index: In index related functions, those functions make up related

The bug have moved to infoschema_discover. -_-!

I just think the remaing time is a little short. But I believe I can finish
