Ok - thanks again for your patient explanation. I had a brainfart
on that line, I think I actually meant to say
+ MySQL continues to be maintained in Debian and may be
+ included in future stable releases.

+ MySQL continues to be maintained in Debian, in the
+ <literal>unstable</literal> release.
Thanks for your work on MySQL, btw. We use it daily.
