And MySQL AB apparently has 50 employees spread around the world. says

    David Axmark

    David Axmark is one of the founders of MySQL and worked with the
    product well before it had a name. He has worked as a consultant and
    software developer for nearly 20 years. Interested in free software
    since the early 80s, David has been committed to developing a
    successful business model through open source software. 

If he's particularly interested in a "successful business model" might
it be worth someone inviting him to join the list in the hope he has
time to contribute?
