requirements-dev.txt requires mysqlclient which requires the OS dependency the mysql_config command. does not let the new developer know this.

Expected results

pip install -r requirements-dev.txt

Expect: success!

Actual results

How to reproduce the bug

  1. Have a system without the mysql_config command on it

I found that pip install mysqlclient installs a newer version that works. I think we just need to bump the version in requirements-dev.txt

$ pip freeze | grep -i mysql
