Fwd: [debian-mysql] Bug#766996: libmariadb-client-lgpl-dev-compat: misses a mysql_config symlink


I recently got the bug report below for the MariaDB C client library
(Debian package).  The request to add a compatibility symlink from
mysql_config to mariadb_config makes sense to me -- do you see any
potential problems with adding it?

misses a mysql_config symlink

Package: libmariadb-client-lgpl-dev-compat
Version: 2.0.0-1
Severity: important

https://packages.debian.org/sid/libmariadb-client-lgpl-dev-compat says:

"MariaDB Client Library for C, compatibility symlinks

MariaDB is a fast, stable and true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL
database server. SQL (Structured Query Language) is the most popular
database query language in the world. The main goals of MariaDB are
speed, robustness and ease of use.

This package includes compatibility symlinks to allow sources
expecting the MySQL client libraries to be built against the MariaDB
Client Library for C."

The full contents are:


so it won't work with packages expecting mysql_config to give them the flags

-> it should also ship a mysql_config -> mariadb_config link.
