Submission + - Will the real MySQL please stand up? (

An anonymous reader writes: Patrick Galbraith, an X core MySQL Server Engineer raises the question in "What is the official branch of MySQL?".. With Monty Widenius having left Sun and forked off MySQL for MariaDB, and Brian Aker running the Drizzle fork inside of Sun, where is the official MySQL tree? Sun may own the trademark, but it looks like there is doubt that they are still the maintainers of the actual codebase after their Billion dollar acquisition of the code a year ago. Smugmug's Don MacAskhill, who is the keynote at the upcoming MySQL Conference, has commented that he is now using the Percona version of fork of MySQL, and is no longer making use of the Sun version.
