Experimental Git mirror of Oracle MySQL trees

I’ve been working on setting up mirrors on github of all our BZR branches. My first efforts that are at a suitable stage to share are mirrors of the Oracle MySQL trees. This is currently a snapshot of MySQL 5.1, 5.5 and 5.6 with all the tags preserved. I’ve managed to get GIT to compact down the repository to a mere 177MB on disk for all the history, which is rather impressive.

Go check it out: https://github.com/percona/mysql

This should be considered experimental and I may end up pushing up something better at some point soon – i.e. don’t rely on being able to merge later update (think rebase rather than merge).

    Can you merge between 5.6 and 5.5 with these trees?

    They’re just normal git trees, so you should be able to merge anything to anything. (but I haven’t tried any of this yet).
