I've uploaded 5.7 packaging to my github at 
https://github.com/ltangvald/mysql-5.7/tree/mysql-alt (the master branch 
contains the failed attempt at basing this on upstream's packaging).
Would appreciate any help with reviewing and testing so we can get it 
cleaned up.

Bjoern: I included some of the fixes you made on 
http://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/pkg-mysql/mysql-5.7.git, but your work 
was based on the normal tarball, which won't work with in the build 
process, since then it has to download boost.
We released a new upstream tarball that contains the boost headers 
needed to build 5.7 to deal with this problem.

There's a launchpad bug for this at
