13 If both "app-db/mysql-commercial" and "app-db/mysql" are in portage the
14 packages may depend over a "virtual/mysql" . Virtuals are used in gentoo
15 tree for packages that both provide the same functionality.

22 Users to get a package in the tree need to open a bug and attach the an
23 ebuild, then a developer could take care of the bug and insert it into
24 the tree. However that developer will probably need a copy of a
25 commercial MySQL to test and work on.
27 As an alternative you could try to become a developer and take care
28 yourself of the package.
