	I am not sure whether Clint regards anything as really important before 
we deploy mysql-5.5 to unstable - backporting the ubuntu modifications 
perhaps. However as far as I am concerned the only I need to do is 
figure out the appropriate subversion incantations.

	We have already raised a transition bug with the release team: #671115. 
Once it is in unstable we'll need to do a mass bug filing.
