at the moment we seem to have the following mysql flavors in Factory:
There might be more that I don't know about. Given that mysql is a package
that needs frequent updating (both for security and for non-security bugfix
reasons); I was wondering if it really makes sense to have multiple flavors of
it in Factory (and thereby in openSUSE 12.1). We did so in the past for 11.3
and 11.4, and noticed that this was a problem (security updates took look to
be submitted, and then they had major regressions that broke severly).
So, my question is twofold:
- is there anyone stepping up to maintain mariadb and mysql-cluster for the
full openSUSE lifetime?
- if no, who would object (and why) to dropping those variants from factory?
Note that the other flavors can still be in server:database, even built for
older distros, so those who really want it can use it.
