Summary     : An interface to MySQL
Description :
Python interface to MySQL

MySQLdb is an interface to the popular MySQL database server for Python.
The design goals are:

-     Compliance with Python database API version 2.0
-     Thread-safety
-     Thread-friendliness (threads will not block each other)
-     Compatibility with MySQL 3.23 and up
