Subject:Re: Help Save MySQL
View as plain text  
Instead of forming a group hug and singing kumbuya to save MySQL,  why 
don't we take some action to prevent Oracle from keeping 
(destroying/crippling) MySQL?

Who are the regulatory bodies that will decide whether Oracle can keep 
MySQL? Both in Europe and North America? Asia?
What are their email addresses?  They may not realize how destructive 
Oracle can be to the future of MySQL and the number of MySQL database 
installations this will affect.

I think we should start a writing campaign  to the regulatory bodies to 
force (or encourage) them to have Oracle to sell or spin off MySQL to 
another party. What we need is ACTION.

So if someone could provide us with the names of these regulatory parties 
and their email addresses, we can try to light a fire under them to put 
pressure on Oracle. A web page to SaveMySQL would also help get our message 

What do you think guys? Can someone provide us with the names and email 
addresses of the regulatory bodies, or would you rather I post the lyrics 
to kumbuya?
