| Hi Dirk,
| As discussed at
| <https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2016/09/msg00000.html>,
| packages in Debian should build-depend on default-libmysqlclient-dev, not
| directly on either libmariadb-dev or libmysqlclient-dev.  Part of the
| reasoning for this is to allow downstreams to make different decisions about
| their "supported" implementations of MySQL.
| The attached patch which implements this also fixes a build failure of
| rmysql in Ubuntu, which appears to be an incompatibility between rmysql and
| mariadb-connector-c version 3.0.3.  Since mariadb *is* the default mysql in
| Debian, this won't help for any build failure there, but nevertheless
| appears to be a correct change.


Coincidentally, doesn't Ubuntu also default to MariaDB?  Who doesn't, these 

Cheers, Dirk
