Talking with Andrea on irc he told to us (Ionut, me and the rest who
were present) that he would like to wait until 5.5.9 is out.

AFAIK 5.5.9 haven't setted a release day yet, so can we move this and
then wait for the 5.5.9?, I think doing this rebuild and wait for
5.5.9 without know if it will be released on two months or so is too
much, if somebody know when will be the release date please tell us
and can we planify then, but now mysql rebuild is stucked on

I vote for move this to [extra] I can take the responsability if it's
needed to check bugs of mysql package until Andrea is back from exams
