Because nobody fixed it, and when we pinged nobody was working on it

How did that ping looked like?

Dunno ask |miska|.

It should be actually dropped from factory too, failing to build for
~6 months is quite a lot for leaf package.

It was fixed 2 months ago
declined because of changelog policy ...


Though Bruno did a great job getting it up to date in server:database, there
still quite some stuff that needs to be polished to make it through and to
it actually usable. In general, Workbench is an ugly beast and getting it
at least as tit did in past is a hard work.

And as I was quite busy with other stuff, I noticed that it's failing only
it was too late to do all the radical changes to make it work (not to mention
didn't had a time to).

But as it doesn't have a real stable releases and every version is broken in
different way, I actually think that having it only in server:database and
the latest version actually make quite some sense.

I can only agree on what Michal said.
Ony 5x version would have never survive on 13.1 or factory.
Then Mysql released a new version, but then we have to build a new lib used by
it etc.
6.x is totally different, has to be reviewed etc.
It's a pia to build ...

For those who were trusting Workbench they should by curiosity have a look at
the build log.

Like Michal, I've been busy on stuff that I need more (like postgis &

On my side, I will certainly finish by dropping myself as packager of it.
