The results of running "apt-cache showsrc mysql-dfsg" disagree with you here.  
Anyway, my understanding is that having packages in unstable which cannot be 
built from source is a serious policy violation and must be fixed.  It would 
also be good to have a new upload anyway removing the superceded 
mysql-{client,server,common} packages from the source package.

By the way, the libmysqlclient12-dev package is still in unstable, too, and 
lots of packages still Build-Depend on it.  Do you consider that such 
packages must be recompiled against newer libraries, or is that only 
something that would be nice?

Anyway, I'm not going to play BTS tug-of-war here, but I still disagree with 
the bug being closed.  I'm CC'ing debian-release to get a more official 
opinion on this.

now, but I'm not completely sure.)
