MDEV-14296: Moving wsrep_sst_common to /usr/libexec
I am doing a push towards cleaning up as much as possible from our
packaging issues. Starting with the older ones:
wsrep_sst_common.sh is a script that should never be run standalone, it is
rather a helper script used for other wsrep_* scripts. As such, it *does
not really belong in /usr/bin*. See MDEV-14296  for more details.
It looks like rpm packagers - read Fedora - [1a] require us to ship
wsrep_sst_common in */usr/libexec* (or alternatively /usr/share, but
/usr/libexec makes much more sense semantically to me, after reading the
There is PR #603  from Daniel Black, which has some missing changes,
which I've done myself, namely updating the debian/*.install files to put
the file in the correct location and a change in path for our apparmor
profile  .
*My question for you is*: Is this acceptable to do in 10.1 (merge PR 603 +
commits   into 10.1) from a packaging point of view?
The debian packaging policy here , allows one to follow FSH version 3.0
and does not mention any exception for libexec.
I have tested this and I have not encountered any regressions while
upgrading and the script seems to function as intended (although I am not
an expert DBA to make use of wsrep_* scripts).
