Here we go:


* needs some Uploaders to be added
* maybe debian/copyright could be reduced, probably several people in
there never touched mysql-common
* maybe needs some bugs to be closed

the mysql-5.6 git repo is not up-to-date, otherwise I would have
provided a commit for removal of mysql-common


PS: and you get default-mysql-{client,server}{,core} for free ;-)
