"Real compatibility over the whole release cycle" is a higher bar than
we need to achieve.
What we actually need is much weaker, namely API (not ABI)
not really, you need ABI compatibility between MySQL and MariaDB
We don't need ABI compatibility between F18 and F19 for Fedora
packages because there will be a mass rebuild.
where did i say anythign about ABI compatibility between F18 and F19?
We don't need ABI compatibility between the two implementations
the release cycle" because once the client libraries are switched to
the MariaDB implementation, ABI changes in the MySQL implementation no
longer concern Fedora packages.
so why is it statet in the feature page
Non-Fedora pre-compiled binaries would be affected by the
divergence, but this divergence is no worse
than the divergence in ABIs between F18/F19/F20 or between the
corresponding ABIs of MySQL client library versions
hard to say which tools users have running which are
built against MySQL 5.5 and not part of fedora and
if they break, and yes for users this is a topic beause
the distribution / OS for the user is a platform for
his work and tools and not the one and only
