Follow it over on launchpad.
After having fixed an incredibly odd compiler warning (and with -Werror that we build with, error) on OSX (die die die) – xtrabackup for Drizzle is ready to be merged. This will bring it into our next milestone: freemont. Over the next few weeks you should see some good tests merged in for backup and restore too.
While not final final, I’m thinking that the installed binary name will be drizzlebackup.innobase. A simple naming scheme for various backup tools that are Drizzle specific. This casually pre-empts a drizzlebackup tool that can co-ordinate all of these (like the innobackupex script).
But please… if you do create a wrapper tool, for the love of all that is holy, don’t even crack open innobackupex. It will poison your soul. Write a tool, not a script.
Word. Oh my how we do not need unwieldy scripts.
