Description:
Trying to install the mysql-utilities-1.5.6-1.el6.src.rpm file using yum fails.

Why is it distributed in .rpm format?

The documentation states that the source code is available in .zip or .tar.gz formats but the download page for the platform "source code" lists only .zip or .rpm files.

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql-utilities/1.5/en/mysql-utils-install-source.html

The source code repository for MySQL Utilities includes all of the utility code as well as the MySQL Utilities library and manual pages. It is available as an architecture independent distribution, in either Zip archive format (.zip file) or compressed tar archive format (.tar.gz file).

What was updated in the documentation?

The documentation still states that the source code is available as a tar.gz file but there is no tar.gz source download available for 1.6.4 or 1.5.6.

The zip file "mysql-utilities-1.6.4.zip" and the zip file included in the rpm file "mysql-utilities-1.6.4-1.el6.src.rpm" contain different sets of files.

# diff -r rpm zip
Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4: check.py
Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4: freeze.py
Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4: .gitignore
Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4: .gitmodules
Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4: internal
Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4: MANIFEST.in
Only in zip/mysql-utilities-1.6.4/mysql: connector

Only in rpm/mysql-utilities-1.6.4/unit_tests: sample-slow.log
Only in rpm: mysql-utilities-1.6.4.zip
Only in rpm: mysql_utilities.spec

The zip file in the rpm file has a different md5 from the md5 of the standalone zip file.

There is a tar.gz file in the "Linux - Generic" platform on the download page. Is that intended to be the source tar.gz file referenced in the documentation? It does not appear in the "Source Code" platform.
