I just want to write few tips how to get MySQL from development BitKeeper tree, as there are several tricks.
First of all you need a fresh free client – bk-client2.0 http://www.bitkeeper.com/Hosted.Downloading.html .
Once you get it, you can clone latest tree:
bkf clone bk://mysql.bkbits.net/mysql-5.0 mysql-5.0

New client supports “changes” command, so you can look latest changes
bkf changes in mysql-5.0 directory.
It may be useful to get sources related to specific release. MySQL build team marks tree by TAG
with each new release. What I have looking by existing TAGS:

bkf changes | grep TAG
TAG: clone-5.0.32-build
TAG: mysql-5.0.30
TAG: clone-5.0.30-build
TAG: mysql-4.1.22
TAG: clone-4.1.22-build
TAG: mysql-5.0.28
TAG: mysql-5.0.27
TAG: mysql-5.0.26

So, to get sources for 5.0.30 release you need to run:

bkf clone -rmysql-5.0.30 bk://mysql.bkbits.net/mysql-5.0 mysql-5.0.30

Latest Falcon release is available on

Insight for DBAs

  • You can do the tags thing more easily with

    bkf changes -t

    You can also search for a particular change with

    bkf changes -/string/

    and it will list only the changes with that string in the changeset commments.
