Source: mysql-5.5
Version: 5.5.23-2
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 2.1

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
debian/rules contains a get-orig-source rule that downloads the tarball
and strips out the Docs directory. Amongst other things the Docs
directory contains an mysql.info file (which is non-DFSG) and a missing
upstream ChangeLog file (which is DFSG compliant). The rule is not
particularly well documented and as far as I can see there is nothing in the
Debian packaging to say that the upstream tarball had been modified to
make it DFSG compliant.

Now it seems that at some point I directly downloaded from upstream and that it is this tarball that has been uploaded with 5.5.23-2. Also there is a debian/watch file which is broken. The debian/rules rules hard codes the chosen
 One possible solution would be as follows:
1.) Fix the watch file to strip out Docs/mysql.info and use a number of
working mirrors.
2.) Rewrite the get-orig-source rule to use uscan.
3.) Install the upstream changelog and remove the associated lintian overrides
4.) Upload a version 5.5.23+dfsg-1.
