** Description changed:
In MySQL 5.7.15 the only tests in the mtr suite written in python were
rewritten in perl, to remove the python dependency, but this added a
dependency on libjson-perl, without which those tests will fail.
Fix is to change the dependency in d/control
+ If libjson-perl isn't installed (which it won't be in an sbuild build) then
the tests main.myisam_explain_json_non_select_all and
main.myisam_explain_json_non_select_nonemysql-test-run will fail, both during
the build and dep8 runs.
+ The change replaces the old python dependency with one on libjson-perl,
+ and adds a build-dep on libjson-perl
+ [Test case]
+ Build package with sbuild and observe the test log
+ [Regression Potential]
+ This change has been in Yakkety for some time (5.7.15-0ubuntu2).
+ Removing the python dependency could cause issues if there were some
+ unknown dependency on it still lingering.
