Is this still the plan? https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/MySQL/WhichPackage

mariadb-client-10.0 has mysqldumpslow and its manpage along with a lot of other execs scheduled for mysql-server-utils

Didn't check the rest of the WhichPackage plan since it didn't seem to be done.

doesn't seem to contain any .h files or mariadb_config/mysql_config


lrwxrwxrwx root/root ./usr/share/mysql/mysql-test/mysql-test-run
lrwxrwxrwx root/root ./usr/share/mysql/mysql-test/mtr

Not sure why these aren't in /usr/bin

Not that I could see.

I'd see a need to split them when extra dependencies creep in to the plugin.
