PHP team will set mysqlnd as the default mysql driver for 5.4.
Mysqlnd seems to be promoted as the "best" and "stable" mysql driver.
I'd like to offer the user the choice beetwen libmysql and mysqlnd as
soon as possible (and of course, keep this choice as long as possible)
It is now possible to build mysqlnd as a shared extension, so it is
possible to provide both drivers.
I have a working spec,
Build mysqlnd, mysql, mysqli and pdo_mysql (and others)
Build mysql, mysqli and pdo_mysql (with libmysql)
* extension rename
in order to have extensions for both drivers in
the install tree, I need to rename extension
in a way which preserve load order
mysqlnd_mysql (after mysqlnd)
pdo_mysqlnd (after mysqlnd and pdo)
* package php-mysql
=> Conflicts with php-mysqlnd
* package php-mysqlnd
=> provides both php-mysql and php-mysqli
A small question :
what package yum will pull when a webapp requires php-mysql ?
Any comment ?
Ok, to push this to rawhide ? F-16 ?
