Description Remi Collet 2007-03-24 07:29:34 UTC
I sav the mysql-libs new subpackage on Rawhide.

Here is some comments

1/ as mysql requires mysql-libs

mysql-devel (and -server) which requires mysql don't need to requires mysql-libs...

2/ /etc/my.cnf

You put a note (perhaps my.cnf should be in the server package?) but i think it
could even be in the -libs package.

The [client] section can be used to set default parameters (character_set for
PHP, for example)

3/ mysql_config

This could probably go to -devel as this is used to get build options.

4/ i don't see the need to provides the
as ndb support is not enabled.

5/ %{_libdir}/mysql
the dir is owned by 3 packages (mysql, -libs and -devel)
Should probably be owned only by -lis.

This comments probably should go the the "merge review", but i don't find it.


Comment 1 Tom Lane 2007-03-29 22:37:29 UTC
Thanks for the comments.  I'm adopting all of these in 5.0.37-2 except for
moving mysql_config: the --port case at least is useful to client scripts,
so I don't think it's a developer-only thing.  I have some recollection that
we deliberately decided on its placement once before.
