No work has gone on for the MySQL backend for a while, so yes, you will find
github up to date.

Any idea how RDS fared in the amazon meltdown last week? Anecdotally I heard
it had problems also. It is suspected that RDS is built on top of EBS [1].
EBS appeared to be the main problem and seems to be forsaken by cloud
architects now [2]. Recent events and previous experience seems to indicate
that replication across availability zones without EBS is actually more
