trying to upgrade one of my systems, I see that p5-DBD-mysql got a minor upgrade, which pulls in 10+ new dependencies
New packages to be INSTALLED:
Installed packages to be UPGRADED:
p5-DBD-mysql: 4.050 -> 4.050_1
which definitely looks unexpected.
Looking a bit closer at the latest commit, I see that the "SSL" option is now default-on - which explains the effect, because there is a dependency on p5-Crypt-SSLeay now active
Looking at the DBD::mysql module source, this makes me wonder if this is truly needed. The moduke does not seem to use Crypt::SSLeay in any way or form - it's not listed in the Makefile.PL prerequisites, nor is it used anywhere. It needs OpenSSL for the C code.
So - maybe the dependency on p5-Crypt-SSLeay is no longer needed today?
