Hello Jonas and other Perl packagers!

The recent upload of MariadB 10.3 to Debian unstable and also the new
mysql-defaults break the Debian CI tests of your package

MariaDB is a huge package and there is a lot of work to get all
details right. I have already spent several weeks preparing and
executing the mariadb-10.1 -> mariadb-10.3 move and I would need some
help to get it finalized.

I would appreciate very much if you can debug what exactly goes wrong
in the libdbd-mysql-perl tests and perhaps even file a merge request
on Salsa against mariadb-10.3 to get it fixed.

I've spent a lot of effort to create gitlab-ci integration into
mariadb-10.3 so it is easy for other DDs to write, test and submit
contributions. The process is documented at

Thanks for any help you can give!

- Otto

PS. Jonas it was nice meeting you in Taiwan!
