What do the docs and/or MySQL web site say about it? –  John Gardeniers Oct 28 '09 at 6:52
    
@John Gardeniers: I couldn't find anything relevant. Hence asking the question. –  etheros Oct 29 '09 at 15:11

This split just reflects MySQL's confusing naming. Check out their change history for 5.0 to see what happened.

The latest versions are all in "mysql" so unless you need a previous version, you'll just want to emerge mysql with the "community" flag.

Cheers. Any ideas on what the community flag enables? –  etheros Oct 29 '09 at 15:36
