From this list, the packages amarok and grass are attached to the current
libmysqlclient ABI transition.  Please don't do sourceful porter uploads of
them until the ABI transition has completed in testing.

The rekall package is also involved in this transition, but currently fails
to build on all 64-bit architectures, so needs to be fixed for that issue
before the mysql transition can complete.
