Sadly im still learning about ubuntu development as of this development cycle. :( I hope to join clints team, and help out as much as I possibly can this release cycle :)

Nicholas if you need a hand or anything i have plenty of computing power to install a debian vm and help that way.

Hypothetical question for you here:

Lets say I fix something upstream and then i proceed to package the fix and it ends up in my ubuntu ppa could i submit that to the debian mysql team so that i can get it sponsored cutting out you guys having to package it, therefore releasing you to work on other possibly more serious issues?
