WL#7036: Deprecate and remove mysql_fix_extensions
Affects: Server-5.7 — Status: Complete — Priority: Medium
The mysql_fix_extensions Perl script aims to assist migration of datadir files from case-insensitive systems (Windows) to case-sensitive systems (Linux) when the original files were created without regard to the canonical form (all upper-case file extensions). It is unclear how old a Windows build one would have to be using to create files using anything other than the canonical form. The script is also one of the most simple scripts written (5 lines). The proposal is to deprecate the script. See BUG#69015 Deprecate mysql_fix_extensions
