 B.2 Contributors to MySQL
 While MySQL AB owns all copyrights in the `MySQL server' and the `MySQL
 manual', we wish to recognize those who have made contributions of one
 kind or another to the `MySQL distribution'.  Contributors are listed
 here, in somewhat random order:
 Gianmassimo Vigazzola <> or <>
      The initial port to Win32/NT.
 Per Eric Olsson
      For more or less constructive criticism and real testing of the
      dynamic record format.
 Irena Pancirov <>
      Win32 port with Borland compiler.  `mysqlshutdown.exe' and
 David J. Hughes
      For the effort to make a shareware SQL database. At TcX, the
      predecessor of MySQL AB, we started with `mSQL', but found that it
      couldn't satisfy our purposes so instead we wrote an SQL interface
      to our application builder Unireg.  `mysqladmin' and `mysql'
      client are programs that were largely influenced by their `mSQL'
      counterparts.  We have put a lot of effort into making the MySQL
      syntax a superset of `mSQL'. Many of the API's ideas are borrowed
      from `mSQL' to make it easy to port free `mSQL' programs to the
      MySQL API.  The MySQL software doesn't contain any code from
      `mSQL'.  Two files in the distribution (`client/insert_test.c' and
      `client/select_test.c') are based on the corresponding
      (non-copyrighted) files in the `mSQL' distribution, but are
      modified as examples showing the changes necessary to convert code
      from `mSQL' to MySQL Server.  (`mSQL' is copyrighted David J.

 Previous developers of NDB Cluster
      Lots of people were involved in various ways summer students,
      master thesis students, employees. In total more than 100 people
      so too many to mention here.  Notable name is Ataullah Dabaghi who
      up until 1999 contributed around a third of the code base. A
      special thanks also to developers of the AXE system which provided
      much of the architecturial foundations for NDB Cluster with
      blocks, signals and crash tracing functionality. Also credit
      should be given to those who believed in the ideas enough to
      allocate of their budgets for its development from 1992 to present
 Other contributors, bugfinders, and testers: James H. Thompson, Maurizio
 Menghini, Wojciech Tryc, Luca Berra, Zarko Mocnik, Wim Bonis, Elmar
