but we talked about this in the fesco meeting and decided that we're doing a
versioned Obsolete. So if a newer mysql package were to be built, it would
no longer be obsoleted. Like I say, my impression is that we deferred the
question of what our desired outcome would be if that happened since there
wasn't sure to be a mysql packager yet (and still isn't I guess... although
we're getting closer to seeing one show up :-)
MariaDB currently uses "Obsoletes: mysql < 5.6-0" in F19, because if we
used current version (e.g. "Obsoletes: mysql < 5.5.30") then as soon as
mysql-5.5.31 comes it would mean even much more mess. Actually, it also
reflects where MariaDB stays from features & quality POV -- somewhere
between mysql-5.5 and mysql-5.6.
