Should be fixed upstream.
Comment 3 Dan Yocum 2012-11-12 13:23:28 EST
I'm sorry I don't understand.  Are you saying that the fix is applied upstream or that I should report this problem upstream?  

Please, please, oh, please, don't make me use launchpad...

Comment 4 Pádraig Brady 2012-11-13 07:14:31 EST
I was saying this issue should be fixed upstream first, and thus reported there.
Though perhaps the cost of migrating now isn't worth it?
Even custom queries like this can easily be escaped:

# mysql -B -e 'use nova; select `binary` from services;'
Comment 5 Dan Yocum 2012-11-13 09:53:26 EST
I'm actually OK with reporting it upstream - but since I discovered the problem in the our preview product, I figured I'd report it to the "vendor" and let you guys work it in upstream.
Comment 6 Nikola Dipanov 2012-12-12 11:56:08 EST
This does not seem to be something we are willing to propose upstream and does not really seem to cause issues in practice so I am marking it as closed.
