mysql-dfsg-5.1 (5.1.41-3ubuntu10) lucid; urgency=low

  [ Mathias Gug ]
  * Ship mysqld_safe script (LP: #552053).
  * debian/control: Use database for the package section (LP: #498939).
  * debian/mysql-server-5.1.templates: fix MySQL Cluster package name to
    mention mysql-cluster-server (LP: #394515).
  * debian/mysql-common.preinst: delete skip-bdb option if upgrading from 5.0
    since 5.1 fails to start if skip-bdb is in the configuration file.
    (LP: #444349).

  [ Steve Langasek ]
  * un-fuzzy the translations, which were only fuzzied due to a changed
    package name.
