What is the main benefit of running these packages (incl. the old),
over running the vendor RPM packages available from dev.mysql.com ?
Is it a MySQL "Community Edition" versus "Red Hat Edition" thing ?
(Assuming that a similar "mysqlclient14" package is added, that is)
On a side note, I have made a similar "pq3" package for upgrading
from PostgreSQL 7.x to PostgreSQL 8.x - how would I go about to
submit this RPM as an enhancement package to the CentOS project ?
(it provides the old /usr/lib/libpq.so.3, for package compatibility)
