Is this another copy of the mysql code base?

If so, that's not feasible!

It's already bad enough that mariadb was uploaded in addition to mysql.

Cheers,

Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) provides a highly-available MySQL
solution which is based upon the MySQL codebase, but has a quite
distinctly different set of features - specifically synchronous
replication provided by Galera.

This impacts on the standard features of MySQL - for example, query
cache configuration which is a popular performance optimization is not
available - so its not feasible to have a single mysql-* package that
provides both feature sets.

Percona closely track the upstream MySQL codebase and ship
security/point releases fairly promptly after Oracle releases them.

I hope that explains why I want to package PXC for Debian.

So we'll need to ship security updates for Percona six times
a year, which totally sucks as database are notoriously ugly to test.

Are you reliably commiting to prepare tested security updates for
oldstable and stable througout the entire life cycle of Jessie?

Cheers,
        Moritz

Yes - this is an important feature and as long as I'm working on
Ubuntu/Debian, I'll commit to doing this.
