About jalali or Iranian calender, i think fighting about what the name
should be is of no use and will make a lot of problems for us. I know
everything about them. that Jalali calender is based on calculation
and iranian calender has a astoronomical basis. But all these
arguments will lead to our failiur for having a standard calender in
I have added Jalali (Persian , Iranian , ....) calender to MySQL as a
set of functions having J at the beginnig of each of them. But I think
developers of mysql has read all these arguments in mailing lists and
may decided to forget about the patch as I have got no aswer till now.
I think we have one target and that is having jalali (or ...) calender
in our databases NO MATTER WHAT THE NAME IS.
