Relicensing of MySQL Man Pages Just a Bug 68

An anonymous reader writes "As reported earlier on Slashdot it appeared the license covering the MySQL man pages was changed from the GPL to something less good. However, as speculated, this appears to be a bug." The build system was grabbing the wrong files, oops. The fix should be coming shortly: "Once the fixes have been made to the build system, we will rebuild the latest 5.1, 5.5, 5.6 releases plus the latest 5.7 milestone and make those available publicly asap."

    That people were entertaining notions otherwise was asinine, regardless of it involving Oracle. This might have actually been something to worry about if the documents weren't already dual licensed. This sort of mistake has been made time and time again, and will continue to be made time and time again.
