Re: removal proposal: mysql51 and mysql55

I think the last "buildable" version of mysql for sparc/netbsd-8.1 (not sparc64) is 5.1 and 5.5 for macppc /netbsd-8.1 . Not sure is MariaDB 5.5 is buildable too.
Removing MySQL 5.1/5.5 will remove the option to run MySQL from pkgsrc for these platforms.
I will try to dig on my pbuild report to double check on that.

So, is there anyone who uses mysql 51 or 55, and who actually intends to
use them?  Or does anyone know of such use?

Barring requests to keep them, I will remove 51 after 1 week and 55
after 2 weeks.

If you want them kept, I would appreciate an explanation of why, in
terms of why you are not using something newer.
