Package: python-mysqldb
Severity: important


This package build depends on libmysqlclient-dev. It should instead
build-depend on default-libmysqlclient-dev metapackage, and end up
having the run-time dependency of the libmysqlclient implementation
Debian has chosen to use, currently MariaDB instead of Oracle MySQL. 

Announcement of new default-mysql-* metapackages:

Wiki: https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/MySQL/default-mysql-server 

MBF: https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2016/11/msg00832.html 

Please update the depencies accordingly. In most cases the required
change is: 

* BEFORE: Build-Depends: libmysqlclient-dev 

* AFTER: Build-Depends: default-libmysqlclient-dev
