Thank to Andreano Lanusse for posting a link which confirms some of worries about the current state of the MySQL as an Open Source project discussed earlier:

Michael Widenius (often called Monty), the main author of the original version of the open-source MySQL database and a founding member of the MySQL AB company, explain in this presentation the future of MySQL and why he believes MySQL is not a  Open Source project, very interesting presentation.

There is a catch though. MySQL team wants it to be such. It is just hard in current state and there is a desire to change the product evolution direction to attract a “new blood”, to learn from PostgreSQL business/development model.
