Re: Question about contributing a patch

Hello,I reported a bug, at https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=87637, as well as a patch. And Bogdan, the bug hunter, told me this patch would show up on the dev contribution report. So, could anyone please tell me how to contact dev team, or how can I know the progress about integrating the patch. By the way, I signed Oracle Contributor Agreement.
Any reply would be a great help.
Thanks, sincerely

Hello Xiaoyu,

Your interaction with the developers will happen through your bug report just as it did with our bug report handling team. If they need any details or if they need to engage with you again that is where they will contact you.

As to the integration of your fix into our code... that gets more complicated. There may be edge cases or use cases that need us to modify your code to handle. Sometimes these are found as the developer applies your patch to our code, sometimes with post-build unit testing, sometimes only after full integration testing.

And when that work may start depends on when a developer is scheduled to work on the specific bug you designed the patch for. So it could be a while.

Thank you very much for helping MySQL to become a better product!
