|Title||MySQLdb version 0.3.0 is untested|
|Assigned user||Nick Barnes|
|Description||We may fail with later MySQLdb versions, in particular 0.3.0 which I believe is gaining popularity. We haven't tested this. We should test and make any appropriate fixes. If there are serious incompatibilities, we should at least test the version (MySQLdb.__version__).|
It may not be appropriate to require 0.2.2, as the MySQLdb version is a system-wide property and users may have other requirements forcing them to use 0.3.0. Also, operating systems and Python or MySQL packages are likely to be distributed with 0.3.0 (or above) in future.
|Analysis||Download 0.3.0, test. Add check to bugzilla.py or configure_bugzilla.py to test the MySQL version. As we don't care much about features, we could lift the connection code out (so that any module supporting DB-API v1.0 or v2.0 can be used).|
