This encyclopedia article clearly does not have enough lists. I count at least three maybe four paragraphs of prose. Moreover, somebody has really dumbed it down. There are sections that almost sound as if it were written for an audience that included non-programs of MySQL. And definitely, let's nail down that pronunciation. I think we should have a Finnish speaker pronounce it and then include the audio recording. I will volunteer to learn Finnish in furtherance of this task.
Version History Graph
It might me interesting to include a graph about version history: https://github.com/dveeden/mysql-history-graph
- I would also like to see this here. My only comment is that I feel it is more relevant to the "Community" section than the History section, since it shows the origins of the other distributions. I would suggest changing it so that there is only ever one "hard line" to an ancestor, and multiple soft lines. i.e. Percona Server 5.6 is a hardline to MySQL 5.6, not Percona Server 5.5. MariaDB 5.5 is also a hardline to MySQL 5.5. morgo (talk) 23:34, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
- I've removed the exhaustive list of MySQL versions as it goes against WP:NOT, and no other major database page that I can find has a list like this. It just doesn't fit on the wikipedia page for the database, and is better served from the MySQL site if it's important information. Any other thoughts on the matter? q (talk) 04:50, 21 August 2016 (UTC)
"...the world's second most[a] widely used open-source relational database management system (RDBMS)."
"ACID compliance when using InnoDB" on the page - ACID compliance is in question because of the following bug:  which is still not addressed to this day.
I would like to see this mentioned on the page.
