Dear bacula maintainers,

As an alternative to the no longer supported-by-upstream MySQL 5.1 in
Squeeze, the LTS Team is planning to provide *soon* packages for MySQL
5.5 as an option.  However, the current bacula-director-mysql package in
Squeeze is not fully compatible with it, as you can see at [1]. So,
before going any further with MySQL 5.5, we need to update it first.

I have already prepared a patch for this, attached to this mail. Would
you like to review/test it and finish to upload this for squeeze lts?

If yes, please follow the workflow we have defined here:

Note that you would need to issue a Debian LTS Announcement (DLA) for the
updated packages.

You can find a set of mysql-5.5 test packages at:

    deb https://people.debian.org/~santiago/debian santiago-squeeze-lts/
    deb-src https://people.debian.org/~santiago/debian santiago-squeeze-lts/

If you don't want to take care of this update, it's not a problem, we
will do our best with your package.

Thank you very much.

Santiago Ruano Rincón,
  on behalf of the Debian LTS team.
