mysql_client resource manages the MySQL client binaries and development libraries.
It is an example of a "singleton" resource. Declaring two
mysql_client resources on a machine usually won't yield two separate copies of the client binaries, except for platforms that support multiple versions (RHEL SCL, OmniOS).

package_name- An array of packages to be installed. Defaults to a value looked up in an internal map.

version- Major MySQL version number of client packages. Only valid on for platforms that support multiple versions, such as RHEL via Software Collections and OmniOS.

:delete- Removes the client software
