Welcome aboard! Thanks for joining. I've been meaning to contact the
Debian team a while ago, since we do get quite a lot of requests for
Debian packages but I was not sure how to tackle this problem properly.

I was first thinking about simply building DEBs by myself that we could
then offer for download. But on the other hand it does not really make
sense to duplicate your work and I honestly have not much experience in
building DEBs (I'm an RPM guy).

Therefore the question is, how we could cooperate on that in the future.
We would be happy to offer MySQL DEBs for download from our web site, but
I'd hate to simply put this burden on your shoulder alone. Do you have an
idea, how we could coordinate this effort? It would be great if we could
declare your DEBs as "official MySQL" packages, but we need to make sure
that they meet our requirements, so we can support them properly.
