Old versions of the driver can be found at http://www.ibiblio.org/maven2/mysql/mysql-connector-java/
but the latest version of the 3.1 driver is missing.

Could you please upload the latest and coming releases there?

Could you please say me

I was not able to find http://www.ibiblio.org/maven2/mysql/mysql-connector-java/ as mysql mirror. If
I am wrong please say me how I can check the bug from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/3.1.html.

The repository is for Maven (http://maven.apache.org/maven2/index.html) users.
I would understand if you decided not to upload your drivers here, but it would be a nice service to the users using Maven/ant.

I was happy  to see that a new directory was created at http://www.ibiblio.org/maven2/mysql/mysql-connector-java/3.1.11/
Unfortunately, the jar file 
does not contain any class files. It only contains meta data files such as the pom.xml and pom.properties

Who added the drivers in the first place? We generally don't use maven ourselves, and someone else set up this repository, so maybe we need to find out who did that in the first place, and why they aren't grabbing the latest builds as we produce them?

I don't know enough about Maven or the ibiblio repository to figure this out quickly, so can you assist us?

The 3.0.10 release was uploaded (or requested) by Joakim Andersson:

The current (non-working) 3.1.11 release was requested by Raphaƫl Corre:

I will try to request a fix to the 3.1.11 upload.
