[Via Slashdot] Government buyers can now get MySQL on a GSA Schedule. Is this the first time this has happened, though? A quick look at the GSA Advantage site yields at least one or two results for MySQL database license vendors. Besides which, I don’t see any MySQL products on the GSA Schedule mentioned in the article, either. To be fair, it can take some time to update GSA’s information, but it may be better for these folks to make public announcements after the t’s have been crossed. Still, this is a positive step in the right direction for greater use and support of MySQL in the US federal government.
