The situation still has not really changed since we brought it up in
June 2004.  MySQL are still working on a suitable license exception -
the current version still prohibits us from including both the MySQL
client libraries and the MySQL server in Fedora Core.

Additionally, and I'll keep repeating this: changes made to the MySQL
web site do not affect the licensing of released MySQL tarballs.  It
makes no difference what press releases are made or what web pages are
updated, until tarballs hit the ground which are licensed with the new
exception.  That hasn't happened yet.

community lists mysql com is the appropriate list to ask questions about
the status of the license exception.
