Package: apache2
Version: 2.2.3-2
Severity: important

When upgrading from apache 2.0 to apache 2.2, I try to use the mod_authn_dbd to 
authenticate my users against a MySQL database. (The libapache2_mod_auth_mysql 
package works only with apache 2.0)

libdbd-mysql package is installed, and a test perl script connecting to my database 
wia DBI works.

nm libaprutil-1.a shows no symbols related to mysql (there are for pgsql ...)

| Hum ... this problem is due to the exclusion of the mysql DBD driver
| (http://apache.webthing.com/svn/apache/apr/apr_dbd_mysql.c) from
| the aprutil library because of licensing issue. (Cf INSTALL.MySQL
| in the source package ...)

Not much the apache team can do about that and the licencing decision
is a policy decision from Apache upstream.
