Send bug (error) reports, questions and comments to the mailing list
41
at mysql@lists.mysql.com
42

    
43
Please use the 'mysqlbug' script when posting bug reports or questions
44
about MySQL. mysqlbug will gather some information about your system
45
and start your editor with a form in which you can describe your
46
problem. Bug reports might be silently ignored by the MySQL
47
maintainers if there is not a good reason included in the report as to
48
why mysqlbug has not been used. A report that says 'MySQL does not
49
work for me. Why?' is not considered a valid bug report.
50

    
51
The mysqlbug script can be found in the 'scripts' directory of the
52
distribution, that is '<where-you-installed-mysql>/scripts'.
