I just wanted to inform you that MySQL 3.20.32a was released as GPL at
1999-08-22. (http://www.mysql.com/news.html).  This means that
MySQL (at least this version:) is now Open Source.

You can run all new MySQL clients (which are in public domain) against 
this version!

We will continue to release older releases of MySQL as GPL from time
to time...
