Description

Hello,

I suggest add mysqlclient to message of lack MySQL driver. The docs recommend mysqlclient for Python 3. MySQLdb shows in exceptions doesn't support Python 3. I think more useful will be error message which suggest mysqlclient than unmaintained and outdated package.

Greetings,

There's a chance the PyPI entry for MySQLdb might be taken over which could resolve the fork.
