This project is meant to archive the mysqlreport script (and it's documentation). From the original author:

"I have decided to officially retire Hack MySQL, which is to say that the web site (pages, tools, etc.) will no longer be maintained. The MySQL universe has changed significantly since 2004 when I began writing tools. Similarly, my professional and personal lives have changed, too. I dont think Hack MySQL is needed or relevant any longer, and I certainly do not have the time to maintain it.

The web site will remain online for perhaps another year (since Media Temple has always provided free hosting for this sitenks!), then I will remove it or archive it somewhere else.

For further MySQL resources, see Planet MySQL. That aggregate is, imho, the pulse of the MySQL community."

Thus, the mysqlreport script could be lost, even though it might still be useful.
