你好!

Updated MySQL 8.2 man pages and SQL help are now available at https://dev.mysql.com/doc/index-other.html; look for under "Additional Documentation".

After unzipping the archive, you'll need to copy the man pages to your /usr/share/man (or wherever the man pages are located on your system) and install the SQL help from fill_help_tables.sql (see https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/8.2/en/server-side-help-support.html).

Thanks for making us aware of this!

cheers

jon.
