I am not entirely clear about the point of the mysql-source package. It
surely just duplicates the upstream tarball. The long description does
shed some light on it so I am not desperate to get rid of it.
However if we should keep it, it is totally rediculous that it is
arch:any and not arch:all. We almost build it on more architectures than
its popcorn rating. I know *why* it is arch:any. If you try to lockstep
the versions of arch:all and an arch:any package from the same source
then binNMU's cause difficulties and so lintian will complain. However
that is solvable - for example libapache2-mod-perl2-dev shows the right
So we should definitely either get rid of it or make it arch:all.
