akonadi-backend-mysql installs the mariadb service

Yannick Roehlly
Hi,

The akonadi-backend-mysql package changed its dependency from default-mysql-
server-core to default-mysql-server.

That means that is automatically installs a mariadb service. What was the
problem with depending on the core package that only contains the binaries and
does not launch the service ?

Regards,

Yannick

Just read the changelog.

Debian Bug report logs - #921389
akonadi-backend-mysql: akonadi fails to start creating new database/
config - ~/.local/share/akonadi/db_data/ not created

As soon as the core package again contain what is necessary, the work-
can be removed again.

  * Team upload.

  [ Sandro Knauß ]
  * Rename {kubuntu_,}disable_secure_file_priv_check.diff.
  * Update symbols from buildds for 4:18.08.3

  [ Alf Gaida ]
  * Replaced wrapper mysqld-akonadi with link mysqld -> mysqld-akonadi
    (Closes: #921389)
  * Replaced dependency for akonadi-backend-mysql:

I didn't realise both items where related.

If the core package does not get the necessary stuff before the release, maybe
it worth adding something in the News file to tell people to deactivate the
mysql/mariadb service if they don't need it.

Yannick
