GSoC 2015 : Weekly Report #8 : RFE #1163 & some corrections

Week #8

Task(s) completed: None

Tasks worked upon:

RFE #1163 : PMA not using SET NAMES on using custom charset/ collation

Scheduled Deadline: 19th July

Completed on: NA


1. The RFE#1163 suggests that we should use SET NAMES instead of SET CHARSET while using custom collation/ charset.

We were undecided last week about the approach to choose for implementing this feature last week. We are still on the decision phase as we waited as still did not get any feedback about the approaches from the ticket creator.

Now we might discuss this with the team and then close it may be next week. You can refer to the description at the previous post [0].

2. Correction in RFE #657

As pointed out in the last week’s post, we had found a potential bug in this feature’s implementation. You can refer to the description of the bug and the approach at the PR here [1].

We have rectified it and now it works fine.

3. Others:

This week, I pointed out a bug [2] and made the related PR with a possible fix here [3].

Also, proposed a new feature [4] and provided a possible implementation here [5].  

Screenshots: None. I will post a few screenshots next week.

Implemented with: NA
