Description:
The 6.0 reference manual states that the mysql.server init script is located in the "support-files" subdirectory of the binary tarball distribution:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/6.0/en/mysql-server.html

However, this is no longer the case. It has been moved to directory "share/mysql" instead.

How to repeat:
Verify the content of a recent 6.0 distribution (e.g. mysql-6.0.5-alpha-pb87-linux-x86.tar.gz), observe that the "support-files" directory no longer contains "mysql.server". Observe that the file has been moved to "share/mysql" instead.

Suggested fix:
Please update the 6.0 documentation to reflect the new location of the file, add a prominent note to the release notes to inform users about this change.

$ tar tfz mysql-6.0.6-alpha-linux-i686-glibc23.tar.gz | grep mysql.server'$'

According to Danny/Build Team, this must have been a passing issue:

<danny> $ tar tfz mysql-6.0.6-alpha-linux-i686-glibc23.tar.gz | grep mysql.server'$'
<danny> mysql-6.0.6-alpha-linux-i686-glibc23/support-files/mysql.server
