Hello Everybody, I'm looking into RubyForge and the gem specification for any reference of authors to get in touch. I will like to contribute with some corrections made for compiling on Windows (made on my fork at github and others locally). Please: if you're this gem author, could get in touch? Thank you.

I have never had any luck getting in touch with any of them [or the mysql developer (Tomita Masahiro) either]. I asked "Roderick van Domburg" about it once. His reply: I am no longer maintaining the MySQL driver for Windows. The version that is distributed through RubyGems has a project page at http://rubyforge.org/projects/mysql-win that lists Kevin Williams as maintainer. That's as far as I got. Let me know if you're able to get through to anybody. Cheers! -=r

If either of you would like contribute your patches also to mysqlplus [which a few people have contributed to when they couldn't reach the real maintainers] that would be swell, too [for either]. Mohammed would probably even add you as commitors if you asked. Pull requests are also ok. mysqlplus is a fork of the Masahiro's mysql C library. But it's a little more maintained [1.9 compat, has more thread_nonblocking regions for 1.9] and also has added asynchronous call, but it's essentially the same. One thing that might be nice would be figure out if it's possible to distribute windows binaries that work with both mysql 5.0 and 5.1. Currently there are no windows binary distros from it. repository: http://github.com/oldmoe/mysqlplus/tree/master mailing list: http://groups.google.com/group/never-block?hl=en Take care. -=r
