Bug Description

Remove innotop from debian packages.

It isn't in RPMs and we should be consistent with upstream.

Also, innotop should be in its own package if we are going to package it.

Percona server client 5.5 package doesn't provide innotop. It is available as a separate package innotop.

rpm -ql Percona-Server-client-55-5.5.24-rel26.0.256.rhel6.x86_64

or is this a feature request to have innotop included in Percona Server client package?

Apologies, I should have been more specific - I was referring to a Debian/Ubuntu package, which does bundle innotop:

~$ dpkg-query --show percona-server-client-5.5
percona-server-client-5.5 5.5.25a-rel27.1-277.precise

~$ dpkg -L percona-server-client-5.5

I can confirm it, in the Debian percona-server-client-5.5 package (5.5.25a-rel27.1-277.squeeze) the shipped version of innotop is very old and from an obsolete source:

version: 1.6.0 (revision 383)

Innotop development has moved from Sourceforge time ago, I think that the current development is done on Google Code:

Bug confirmed. I've installed percona-server-client-5.5 and I get an old innotop 1.6.0.

root@debian:~# apt-get install percona-server-client
  percona-server-client percona-server-client-5.5 percona-server-common-5.5

root@debian:~# dpkg -L percona-server-client-5.5 | egrep innotop$

root@debian:~# innotop --version
innotop Ver 1.6.0 Changeset 383 from trunk/innotop

Thank you for your report.

It's rather strange that we ship it in debian package but not RPM, and it should probably be its own package anyway.

It's rather strange that you guys would remove it instead of updating it and adding it to the rpm or at least adding it to the Percona toolkit. It probably wasn't in the RPM because it's already in RPM form on google code but there is no deb package.
