It looks like the former backport did use the old libmysql15-dev
Build-Depends and the new one switched to the libmysql-dev one. This
might be related to the bugreports sent out by the mysql maintainers to
drop libmysql15-dev (alternative) build-depends (though it isn't
documented in the changelog ...).
Marco, can you fix that please? Thanks in advance!
