Offer us feedback as soon as possible so we can spot bugs early and improve quickly. Our roadmap and bugs database is hosted at jira.mariadb.org. All bug reports get attention and help keep MariaDB Server a robust, reliable and performant database. Feature requests are also welcome.
MariaDB Server and related tools are tested thoroughly within our buildbot infrastructure. A complete testing system is necessary for a project to continue.
buildbot.mariadb.org has made it easy to contribute computing resources to our system.
