Subject Re: Google SOC:MySQL to Derby Migration tool design question
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2006 22:04:10 GMT
I'm all for helping out other projects, but IMHO Derby could really use 
this migration tool.  We could let the DDL team know these issues exist, 
participate in discussions with them, while at the same time scratching 
our own itch and getting a migration tool done before Ramin disappears...
