reassign 675304 amarok

I am much clearer about this now. This bug is clearly a duplicate of #672207.

That said I think we could have instead of changing

" language        = /usr/share/mysql/english"


"lc-messages-dir = /usr/share/mysql"

changed it to

loose-lc-messages-dir = /usr/share/mysql/
# This option is deprecated and will be removed in a later version
language        = /usr/share/mysql/english

This would have maintained backwards compatibility and removed the need for the Breaks clauses.

However it is also clear that an application with an embedded MySQL server, like amarok, should avoiding making use of system wide MySQL config files to insulate itself not just to changes in the Debian packaging but also changes that the DBA makes to the MySQL configuration. amarok seems to have done this now.

I am trying to draw wider lessons from this, but for now I am reassigning this report to amarok, with the expectation that one of more of the following will happen:

1.) The bug will be merged into #672207 effectively closing it.
2.) That it will be reassigned to a request to have amarok aged so that the user can upgrade his amarok.
