Thank you for participating in the Help Save MySQL campaign in the EU.
We promised to
send you a single email update of how things are going and this is it.

There is still an EU process going on regarding the Oracle/Sun case,
but we think it's better
to leave this behind us for now and instead concentrate on the future.

We have some very positive news unrelated to the EU process but very
much about ensuring
a bright future for the MySQL community.

The MariaDB Foundation,
has been launched.

The MariaDB foundation will ensure that it's not anymore just one
person or one company that
is driving MariaDB/MySQL development.  It's only by having a set of
independent companies
together work with the common goal of keeping MariaDB as an actively
developed open source
project that MariaDB and the MySQL ecosystem can be truly free and futureproof.

Over the last 3 years the MariaDB database system has cemented its
place in the database
market as the drop-in replacement for MySQL. Now the time has come to
take the next step.

All from the same trusted team: Holyfoot, Igor, Kristian, Monty,
Sanja, Sergei Golubchik,
Sergei Petrunia, Timour, Wlad and many other developers in the
MariaDB/MySQL community.

You can participate in the MariaDB community and sign up for a
donation to the Foundation
at http://mariadb.us6.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=723871526dcf9d4250c26b842&id=be137c7474&e=7cf5f588a1.

Using MariaDB or MySQL for a business critical application?
The best way to ensure MariaDB and MySQL are actively developed is to
help the MariaDB
Foundation to succeed!

Please forward this email to your friends that are using MariaDB / MySQL!

Your email will not be kept or used ever again.
