[Pkg-roundcube-maintainers] Bug#609878: roundcube-core should suggest php-mdb2-driver-mysql and php-mdb2-driver-pgsql

Package: roundcube
Version: 0.3.1-6
Severity: minor

Roundcube is most often used with MySQL on bigger hosts. It uses the MDB2 PHP
library. The package should suggest php-mdb2-driver-mysql and/or
php-mdb2-driver-pgsql, otherwise it does not work straight out of the box,
and only a quite misleading error message ("Could not establish connection 
to the database") is displayed.

This would be a good improvement, especially since we have dbconfig proposed
as an option.
