Proposed Fedora 19 Feature: Replace MySQL With MariaDB

Very long discussion on the Fedora mailing list considering and planning the replacement of MySQL with MariaDB:

Recent changes made by Oracle indicate they are moving the MySQL project to be more closed. They are no longer publishing any useful information about security issues (CVEs), and they are not providing complete regression tests any more, and a very large fraction of the mysql bug database is now not public.

From the reply of Andrew Rist (Oracle):

We’ve been following the discussions to replace MySQL with MariaDB in Fedora, and would like to provide additional data to help the community make the most informed decision. Instead of switching**the default to MariaDB 5.5 we would like to propose that Fedora instead integrate MySQL 5.6. Switching to MariaDB would be going backwards, as their releases usually lag by at least 6 months. The differences between MariaDB 5.5 and MySQL 5.6 are quite significant, with major improvements in both performance and stability [1] , as well as additional features and improved security [2].

Another interesting bit mentioned in the thread by Henrique Junior:

OpenSUSE is dumping MySQL in the next release 12.3 […]

I went through the thread twice and I’m not sure which is the conclusion. But it’s starting to look like Oracle’s approach to managing MySQL is not appreciated by some.
