Good signs from Monty

Monty just posted a blog about the status of Maria and his proposal to have an architectural meeting at the MySQL Conference. Then he said something at the end that I thought was pretty promising. I hope he can make this fly!

I hope that within Sun we will get resources to change our current polices, priorities and in some ways the whole engineering organization to make the development model much friendlier to outside participants. It should be as easy for an outsider to get a patch into the MySQL server as someone working for MySQL. This is one of the things I would like to spend my time on inside of Sun!

You go, Monty!
