[debian-mysql] Bug#915217: mariadb-common: Package in experimental is outdated and thus breaks piuparts tests

Package: mariadb-common
Version: 10.3.0-0+exp2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

currently the piuparts tests for the munin package in experimental fail.

for an example.

The relevant part of the log:
   The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   piuparts-depends-dummy : Depends: default-mysql-client but it is not going to be installed

The source of the problem is the following:
* there is a mariadb-common package in experimental (10.3.0-0+exp2)
* the default-mysql-client package depends on mariadb-client-10.1, which
  indirectly depends on mariadb-common (>=1:10.1.37-1)

Since the mariadb-common package in experimental is quite old (March
2017), it did not yet receive the epoch bump, that mariadb-10.1 went
through in November 2017.

Thus "default-mysql-client" cannot be installed if "experimental" is the
preferred distribution (e.g. in piuparts: "apt-get -t experimental ...").

Removing mariadb-common from experimental or updating the package
(including the epoch bump) would probably solve the issue.

Thank you!
