Bug#768096: ITP: python-mysqlclient -- Python interface to MySQL
Owner: Brian May <email@example.com>
* Package name : python-mysqlclient
Version : 1.3.4
Upstream Author : INADA Naoki

Programming Lang: Python
Description : Python interface to MySQL
To maintained by the Debian Python Modules Team.
This mysqlclient library is now the recommended choice for using MySQL
It is compatible with the current mysqldb package, except the current
package does not have python3 support.
It might be too late now for Jessie(?), but I think it is worth having
in sid, regardless.
At quick glance it looks like this package provides a MySQLdb python
module. So, unless I am mistaken, it looks like it would conflict with
python-mysqldb. Is this considered acceptable?
Or would another solution be better, e.g. update the python-mysqldb
package to use this fork?
