The SHOW AUTHORS statement displays information about the people who work on MariaDB. For each author, it displays Name, Location, and Comment values. All columns are encoded as latin1.

These include:

  • First the active people in MariaDB are listed.
  • Then the active people in MySQL.
  • Last the people that have contributed to MariaDB/MySQL in the past.

The order is somewhat related to importance of the contribution given to the MariaDB project, but this is not 100% accurate. There is still room for improvement and debate...
