I posted about this in the users mailing list, but since not everybody may be reading both lists I'll repeat it here:

I have finished integrating the Sphinx full-text search engine in RT. We did it on RT 3.8.8.
It is working very well here, and I have published everything on the wiki (look for "IntegrateSphinx").

It may not be the solution you're looking for, but it works VERY well on a mysql database of about 15 thousand tickets.

There are new developments with respect to what I published on the wiki (sortable columns in the results), I'll try to update it ASAP.

It's not a priority right now, since the other database engines include workable built-in full text and we'd need to do 50x (seriously) more work to bundle in an external FTS. We basically have the Pg/Oracle code. MySQL's internal FTS isn't really as useful.

So, "dropped", no. "Backburnered" - definitely.

If you want/need FTS on MySQL, we can certainly chat about how to make that happen.
