Bug#671115: [debian-mysql] Bug#671115: Bug#671115: transition: mysql-5.5

That should be trivial. We need only remove all the other binary stanzas, right?

an unfortunate, but necessary evil.

We can upload a version of 5.1 that has no mysql-server, mysql-client,
or mysql-testsuite packages, and also that depends on a mysql-common-5.1
which breaks/replaces mysql-common<<  ${binary:Version}, and conflicts
with mysql-common>>  ${binary:Version}, so that everything remains
installable during the transition. mysql-common in 5.5 would also then
need a Breaks/Replaces of that package to handle upgrades properly.

I'd rather see a new mysql-5.1 upload that builds *only*
