SHOW AUTHORS

Description

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

In MariaDB 5.5 this is in somewhat random order.

In MariaDB 10.0.5 and later you have:

  • First the active people in MariaDB are listed.
  • Then the active people in MySQL.
  • Last the people that has 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 improvements and debate...
