Can we discuss adding mysql/postgresql support to proftpd? It was requested in the past but closed because of the giant mysql dependancy. Now that we have libmysqlclient and postgresql-libs broken off this is not such the issue it once was. Our postfix supports both, shouldn't our proftpd?

This task depends upon

I agree with Judd's initial assessment, despite having the libraries split from the main packages, compiling with mysql/postgresql support still requires them as deps and not makedeps afaik.

Right it will require them as full deps but we have several other server packages (dovecot,postfix,pdns,cyrus) that support it already. We need an official stance on what libraries we support as a distro instead of each package supporting what the maintainer configures.

Perhaps we should take this to the ML and get everyone else's opinions?

Sure, that's fine by me.

I have to side with Dale here. Saying "oh that's too many deps" is a silly argument because everything under the sun depends on these libs

Since I seem to be outnumbered, a version with mysql/postgresql enabled is in [testing]

Thanks Dan, is it compiled against the current openssl or v1.0.0?

Compiled against the openssl-1.0.0 package in [testing]
