Bug #3710 Manager mysql doesn't handle added_indexes

Description: ------------ I've just noticed MDB2 Manager doesn't handle added_indexes or any indexes operation overall. This makes it almost useless as indexes are very critical. Is there a plan when this will be supported?

I guess you're talking about this: <index> <name><variable>auth_user_id</variable></name> <unique>1</unique> <field> <name><variable>auth_user_id</variable></name> </field> </index> If so it should already be in the package.

Hmm I guess I need to state the problem clearer. Manager can create indexes, but only if you do it at the same time you create the table. If the table already exists, then you add an index, the MySQL *implementation* for Manager doesn't handle that. It doesn't handle all other index-related operations for ALTER TABLE, as far as I can see from the source. Note that MDB 2.0.0 beta 2 had full functionality, the last (probably a week ago) CVS version doesn't have this functionality and therefore it is a "bug".
