Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-04-24 10:29:09 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest stable release of Django enforces a MySQL-python minimum version of
1.2.1p2 for its mysql backend, apparently due to bugs in previous versions of

They have a deprecated backend, mysql_old that currently works, but won't be
maintained (and presumably will trigger the bugs that caused them to raise the
min version in the first place).

Would it be OK to update MySQL-python? Otherwise I'll put a note in FC-5's
Django to remind users to use mysql-old.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Sorry this bug slipped through the cracks for awhile :-(.  But FC-5 is EOL and won't be updated any more.  
F7 and F8 have 1.2.2.
