Bug#481976: libaprutil1: do we really need mysql stuff
this evening, trying to upgrade my debian sid, I saw that the dist-upgrade
wanted to install libmysqlclient15off and mysql-common. It's a desktop system
and I really have no need for mysql stuff, even libs.
This is because libaprutil1 is now built with mysql support, which I guess is
nice for people using it, but… I only use libaprutil1 as a dependency for
subversion, so I really don't need it and would prefer not have yet another
useless lib on my system.
Would it make sense to have a libaprutil1-mysql for this driver?
Thanks for your time anyway. It's not because some packages are only installed
because they are deps for other that we don't need them. Your work is really
