bugs.mysql.com reports:

Page generated in 0.031 sec. using MySQL 8.0.31-u7-cloud

The release notes page shows this was released in October 2022, so a year ago.
See: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/8.0/en/news-8-0-31.html.

The -u7 update indicates the binaries have been updated (probably security fixes and maybe some bug fixes) but this is not your latest code.

The latest GA version of MySQL is 8.2 released a few days ago.
See: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/8.2/en/news-8-2-0.html

It's good to show people that you run the code you suggest others run so please consider upgrading bugs.mysql.com to 8.2 and keep that visible to users. Also  keep updating when 8.3 and later are released.

Doing this is a sign you trust your software and you lead by example.

How to repeat:
1. Look at the bottom of bugs.mysql.com to see the version of MySQL being used.
2. Compare with the latest GA version released by Oracle, which you can see here: https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/

Upgrade if version of 1 < version of 2.

Suggested fix:
Please ensure this website runs the latest GA version of MySQL.
