Open-source database developer mailing lists

What’s going on at your favorite open-source database developer mailing list? Non-scientific memory of what I’ve been seeing lately:

  • The Drizzle list is talking about test coverage and completeness, and schedulers.
  • The MySQL internals list has recently been dominated with talk about coding standards.
  • The PostgreSQL hackers list is talking about a ton of stuff. I don’t even try to keep up.
  • The Percona launchpad list is talking about bugs, xtrabackup, and more bugs and patches for them. There’s also a Percona Google Group that is not very active. In fact there are several Percona lists; it looks a little confused.
