The Workbench 2022-01
A working package is ready now. Run MySQL 8.0 on your Solaris X86 machine (maybe run it in a zone?).
Instructions about starting with MySQL 8.0.27 / 8.0.28 on Solaris / OmniOS are here: https://sfe.opencsw.org/SFEmysql80
Make sure, you have installed at minimum these package timestamps:
S11.4 GA - email@example.com
S11.4+SRU - firstname.lastname@example.org
S11.3+SRU - email@example.com,5.11-0.0.175.3.33
OmniOS and OpenIndiana will follow...
Testing! OmniOS 151038 - firstname.lastname@example.org,5.11-0.151038.22
The package mysql-80 mimics the layout and integration like the good old MySQL 5.7 packages. I'll add more OS-platforms like Solaris 11.3, OmniOS and OpenIndiana a bit later (tell me if you want this packages for that OS). You want a mysql-8.0.27/8.0.28 package for sparc CPU? Drop me a note!

(20220112-2140CET removed notes about solved db-init errors, testing done, so removed call for testers - well, you may still ask to volunteer, just test the package with the test-suite and remember to load all the needed plugins for the tests - drop me a note, if you have tested and how)
(20220115 added Solaris 11.3 package FMRI für mysql-80)
(20220119 updated to available 8.0.28 version)
