MariaDB Server’s continuous integration & testing available to community

How MariaDB Server is tested

MariaDB Foundation is commited to ensuring MariaDB Server has a thriving community of developers and contributors. A software project cannot be maintained without proper tests. mysql-test-run is our standard testing toolkit for MariaDB Server. What it (mostly) does is run queries against one or more servers and compare their output to the expected one. This checks both behaviour and data consistency. The main principle is the server should always return the same data that is put into it.

One problem with this testing method is that it only covers the hosts’ environment. That means that if you are running Debian on x86_64 architecture, you are testing x86_64 architecture on a Debian Linux distribution. Read more

MariaDB Foundation Endorses the SaveDotOrg Campaign to Protect the .org Domain

The MariaDB Foundation is proud to put its name behind the SaveDotOrg campaign. We urge the Internet Society (ISOC) to cancel the sale of the Public Interest Registry (PIR) to Ethos Capital. NGOs and non-profits rely on the .org domain, and the proposed sale to a private equity firm puts this pillar of internet freedom at significant risk.

Howto run MariaDB on a Chromebook

Chromebooks are a breed of very portable and easy-to-use laptops with a Linux-based operating system from Google and hardware available from many manufactures. Chromebooks are very popular in the educational sector due to their low price and the effortlessness to use as they require next to no administration and “just works” all the time.

Despite being based on Linux (just like Android is), the Chromebook OS is a very closed down platform. Google ensures the devices are always safe and security updates are automatically installed, while the user just logs in with their Google account and does not have real root access to the devices (again, similar to Android systems).

Discussions at Universitas Kristen Duta Wacana in Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Mind the Gap

Closing the gap between supply and demand is in the interest of several stakeholders:
