The Open edX Data Working Group met today. You may find the meeting notes here.
We proposed a plan for migrating from MySQL 5.7 → MySQL 8. The high-level milestones of that plan are:
- Nutmeg : MySQL 5.7 on the server side, and ARM64 dev environments can use MariaDB 10.4
- Olive : Support both MySQL 5.7 and 8.0 on the server side, and ARM64 dev environments will move to MySQL 8.0
- Poplar : Support MySQL 8.0 only
I’ve added some related work to the public roadmap.
The epic that represents all the work currently known is here.
Support window alignment with release is available here.
