Re: Typical problem of many large organizations

Hahaha, we do this too :) Lets see what we have...

MySQL 4.0 (Support ended 2008), 4.1, 5.0, 5.1

Solr 1,3,4,5 (Yep. It seems we like installing Solr, but no-one likes upgrading or patching. Latest is 7 btw)

When you tell business types here you want to spend 1 month updating the DB and testing/optimising all the DB queries, after which they have no new features or design to show clients, they tell you where to stick it.

We have a "security" guy, whose purpose appears to be thrown under the bus if we have any security issues to protect the head honcho. He does no security audits, doesn't read code, and isn't interested in tracking used products and CVEs.
