How to add debug symbols for MariaDB Debian/Ubuntu packages

I don't know about other distributions, but I know that the debug symbols were stripped from Debian/Ubuntu packages. If there are some crashes reported I won't be able to fully analyze them. The only way to fix this problem is to build the packages again.

[codesyntax lang="bash"]

git clone
cd server/
git branch -a
git checkout 10.0

apt-get install libdistro-info-perl
apt-get install fakeroot
apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev libpam0g-dev dpatch libjemalloc-dev
apt-get install libboost-all-dev libjudy-dev libjudydebian1
apt-get install build-essential dpkg-dev devscripts hardening-wrapper
apt-get build-dep mysql-server
