# MySQL tap released!
The MySQL tap, built by Stitch, has been released! This tap includes support for both InnoDB and MyISAM, allowing you to replicate from the most commonly used MySQL storage engines.
Want your tap to be added to the Singer project? Reply to this email and we’ll reach out with more information.
# Best practices
We’ve added metadata to our growing list of best practices for building taps and targets.
Metadata is the preferred mechanism for associating extra information about nodes in a schema. You can add any information relevant to the tap, but should always include the following:
  • selected to indicate a node has been selected by the user for replication
  • selected-by-default to indicate nodes that should be replicated regardless of whether or not the user has selected it
  • inclusion to indicate if the field is available for selection and what should happen based on the selected and selected-by-default fields
# Interview with GitLabs’s CEO
Jake Stein, CEO of Stitch, sat down for a “pick your brain” meeting with GitLab CEO Sid Sijbrandij. Check out this blog post with some of Sid’s lessons learned about driving open source adoption and how that relates to Singer.
