in Midgard we use a lot of metadata, so every bit counts.
for example, your table states that "MySQL 5.0.x" is fully functional,
but for us only 5.1.x+ works (maybe some latest 5.0.x also do, but
definitely not all of them) because 5.0.x doesn't provide enough
at the moment, we test all our releases against SQLite and MySQL 5.1.
I just wonder which of other "providers" will work for us, and which won't
If there are corrections to be made, I'll make them; all I need is a bug report (preferably bugzilla but mail is Ok). You're right that I never kept track of the exact versions of the database servers with which I test. In the meanwhile, I'll correct the text about MySQL to state that it works with 5.1 (as opposed to 5.0).
