Following the decision to move libmysqlclient to libperconaserver (thanks for that by the way, I’m not sure what packaging issues you were “fixing”, but it certainly caused us a few!) I’m trying to work out what has happened to the old “Percona-Server-shared-compat” package.
Did the version number on the Percona-Server-shared-compat package get rolled back? We’ve got machines with Percona-Server-shared-compat version 5.5.35-rel33.0.611.rhel6.x86_64 installed, but now the yum repo is showing up as having version 5.1.68-rel14.6.551.rhel6 of the Percona-Server-shared-compat package.
I also now see a new package called Percona-Server-shared-compat-51 which is version 5.1.73-rel14.11.603.rhel6 and mysql-libs seems to be provided by Percona-Server-shared-51, which is also version 5.1.73-rel14.11.603.rhel6.
Previously, we would have had Percona-Server-server-55, Percona-Server-client-55, Percona-Server-shared-55 and Percona-Server-shared-compat installed to give us a working Percona Server install with compatibility for RPMs depending on libmysqlclient.so.16 in mysql-libs.
Now we seem to have Percona-Server-server-55, Percona-Server-client-55, Percona-Server-shared-55 and Percona-Server-shared-51 doing the same thing. Is that right/expected?
If so, what are the Percona-Server-shared-compat and Percona-Server-shared-compat-51 packages for now?
