Tomorrow will be dedicated to fixing most of them as well as some upgrade testing. I'll also have a look at the new mysql upstart job that has replaced the mysld_safe script.
Looking at the bugs today I've found a couple of bugs that look easy to fix:
- Bug 552053: mysqld_safe should be available in mysql-server
- Bug 498939: mysql- packages section on synaptic
To get started grab a copy of the package branch:
bzr init-repo mysql-dfsg-5.1/
bzr branch lp:ubuntu/mysql-dfsg-5.1
Fix a bug and push the branch to launchpad:
bzr push lp:~YOUR-LOGIN/ubuntu/mysql-dfsg-5.1/zap-bug-XXXXXX
And finish up by creating a merge proposal for the Lucid package branch. I'll take a look at the list of merge proposal throughout the day and include them in the upload schedule for tomorrow.
