Please sync python-mysqldb 1.2.2-7 (main) from Debian unstable (main).

Changelog since current intrepid version 1.2.2-5ubuntu1:

python-mysqldb (1.2.2-7) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/control
    - list items lines in description starts with 2 space, to avoid reformat
      on webpages (Closes: #480341)

  * debian/patches/02_reconnect.dpatch:
    - Dropping patch:
      Comment in Storm which explains the problem:

        # Here is another sad story about bad transactional behavior. MySQL
        # offers a feature to automatically reconnect dropped connections.
        # What sounds like a dream, is actually a nightmare for anyone who
        # is dealing with transactions. When a reconnection happens, the
        # currently running transaction is transparently rolled back, and
        # everything that was being done is lost, without notice. Not only
        # that, but the connection may be put back in AUTOCOMMIT mode, even
        # when that's not the default MySQLdb behavior. The MySQL developers
        # quickly understood that this is a terrible idea, and removed the
        # behavior in MySQL 5.0.3. Unfortunately, Debian and Ubuntu still
        # have a patch right now which *reenables* that behavior by default
        # even past version 5.0.3.

python-mysqldb (1.2.2-6) unstable; urgency=low

  [ Sandro Tosi ]
  * debian/control
    - uniforming Vcs-Browser field

  [ Monty Taylor ]
  * Added patch to allow setting the port in my.cnf or ~/.my.cnf to actually
  * Added myself to Uploaders.

  [ Bernd Zeimetz ]
  * debian/control:
    - Updating my email address.

  [ Jonas Meurer ]
  * Several minor fixes thanks to lintian warnings:
    - Update standards-version to 3.7.3 (no changes needed).
    - Change build-depends on libmysqlclient15-dev (>= 5.0.26-1) to >= 5.0.26
      to make live easier for backporters
    - Capitalize Python in the long description of python-mysqldb-dbg
    - Add lintian override file for 'package-contains-empty-directory
      usr/share/python-support/python-mysqldb-dbg/', python-support relies on
      this directory.
    - Actually mention Copyright and the © symbol in debian/copyright.
  * debian/rules:
    install target should depend on build-stamp instead of build. This way,
    the build target is only executed once.
