I have had a great response from people with regards to the (possible) closure of MySQLDevelopment. It seems people want to keep the site alive in one format or another and I have had a lot of communication from MySQL themselves with regard to keeping the content alive.
First let me say sorry to all the people who did respond, as suggested in my last post I am really busy at the moment and it's difficult to find the time to reply in a timely fashion. I will be contacting you all individually this weekend.
Whatever happens it seems that while the site may change a little as from the 1st May MySQLDevelopment will still be available in some form. I'll keep you posted.
