Description:
To help with supporting debian binaries, we should merge patches from Debian that make sense. I'll continue to add patch descriptions here as I find them. 

1)  Use "/usr/bin/sensible-editor" before emacs if it exists.  

2) Search /etc/mysql after /etc for config files

3) Change permissions on socket dir if we create it 

If possible, it would be great if Debian didn't need to apply any patches.

How to repeat:
Download the debian source. Go into the Debian directory. look at the list of files in the patches directory, each one containing a downstream modification.

Reverted the /etc/mysql/my.cnf patch in 4.1 and 5.0 trees, as it introduced a possibly incompatible change.
[26 Feb 2007 19:47] Paul Dubois
Noted in 5.1.15 changelog.

On Unix, when searching the standard locations for option files,
MySQL programs now also look for /etc/mysql/my.cnf after checking for
/etc/my.cnf and before checking the remaining locations.
