I think this is the wrong way round. As long as there is a vibrant 
Debian MySQL community, MySQL will be in Debian. Even if Clint formed a 
fixed conviction that MySQL could be dropped, as long as other people 
were willing to maintain it, his conviction would come to nothing. He 
said as much in 
. If Clint (and anyone who feels srongly enough) is going to discuss the 
situation regarding Oracle, MySQL, Pecona, MariaDB and so on than that 
is surely a good thing. And the original comment came up at a time when 
in pactice noone was maintaining MySQL in Debian, so was entirely fair. 
It is to avoid that situation arising again that I am trying to document 
how the community including can work together on MySQL and with Ubuntu 
in the Debian Wiki: http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/MySQL.
