[Python-modules-team] Bug#409814: python-mysqldb: no python2.5 support

Package: python-mysqldb
Version: 1.2.1-p2-4
Severity: normal

The python-mysqldb package should support python2.5.  Currently no files
are installed in /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/.  For example:

$ python2.4
Python 2.4.4 (#2, Jan 13 2007, 17:50:26)
[GCC 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-21)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import MySQLdb
$ python2.5
Python 2.5 (release25-maint, Dec  9 2006, 14:35:53)
[GCC 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-20)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import MySQLdb
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: No module named MySQLdb

The MySQLdb package ought to work on python2.5, judging from the limited
information available on sourceforge, and I have an unconfirmed report that
this package works with python2.5 in Ubuntu (sigh).

There is a patch in the Ubuntu repository:
but it seems that a rebuild was all that was necessary to support python2.5.
