Description Andre 2011-11-10 12:21:42 UTC
The MySQL C++ connector has GPL license which is incompatible with the Apache license.  Therefore the mysqlcppconn module, where the external library is built from, has to be removed.

Remove mysqlcppconn and references to it.

Remove the mysqlcppconn module that provided a local build of the MySQL Connector/C++.
Comment 2 Andre 2011-11-14 08:21:59 UTC
The connector can still be built but the required libraries have to be supplied externally.
Use options
for this.
