Yes, now that the license issue has been sorted out and we've finally gotten
the PHP4 ABI change/security fixes into testing, I think it's time at last
to get moving on the libmysqlclient transition.

The timing is rotten for me to do anything here until probably the middle of
next week; but if maintainers can use the weekend for uploading packages
built against libmysqlclient12, I'll follow through with the rest of the
original bug filing/NMUing plan on Wednesday.  (My own maintainer uploads
will most likely have to wait until then as well.)

Please refer to <http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2005/01/msg01757.html>
if you need a reminder of what needs to happen.  The adjusted timeline will
be as follows:

- Maintainer uploads to transition to libmysqlclient12 will begin this
  weekend.  This will most likely not include myodbc, but may include php4
  if I rope Adam into it.
- On Wednesday, Mar 9 I will file grave bus on any remaining packages from
  the original list that have not been relinked against libmysqlclient12.
- On Saturday, Mar 12 I will begin NMUing any packages from that list which
  have not been fixed.
