By trawling the web I see that othershave asked in the past about DSpace supporting MySQL. Soneone even submitted a patch for it, I believe, but this appears not to have made it into 1.5.1. However, versions with the changes necessary for MySQL are out there. See the article about one million items at So I was wondering, what plans are there to officially support mySQL?

The reason I am interested is I have just discovered that my webspace provider has enabled mySQL, so if DSpace supported it I would be able to make a DSpace repo on-line.
