- Rebuild due to mysql 5.0 update and openssl library update.



we see rebuilds very often due to library updates. are they strictly necessary (i.e., do the libraries break binary compatbility so often?)
The openssl doesn't keep ABI stable between versions (sometimes even
between the patch levels). So bumping the soname and rebuilding
dependencies was necessary.
okay.

There is other problem that some of the
dependencies are not necessary (they are pulled only through pkgconfig).
aha. I guess this adds to the churn.

my question wasn't about openssl specifically (though it did generate a lot of rebuilds)
