We have found ourselves making some performance and scale improvements for the MySQL .NET driver from here http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/net/

We know where to get the source in a ZIP archive. But is there a proper source repo that we can contribute to? A google search yields a blank.

    You can also ask the MariaDB (the other active MySQL fork) developers whether it's worth to submit the improvements in their codebase as well. I suppose if the code is approved my the Oracle MySQL team, it will eventually find its way into that codebase as well but I have no idea about the various licence related issues.

  • @Mat: That seems like a terribly long winded and corporate way to do OSS development. And no public GIT/Mercurial? Commented Jan 17, 2014 at 17:44

At the time of this writing, there is not public repository for Connector/NET, if you have performance/scaling improvements you are welcome to contribute them (together with a bug report) at bugs.mysql.com.
