Just a small point of clarification. MySQL AB went defunct in 2008 when they were acquired by Sun Microsystems. After that, Sun Microsystems was acquired by Oracle. Because the original MySQL staff did not like Oracle, they forked the codebase and became MariaDB, which is where that development from the original authors now takes place.
