"Fedora is going to prefer MariaDB (FESCo stated it clearly yesterday)"
It did now? If that's the case then I would like a full fledge statement from FESCO
saying so and a discussion what
is supposed to be the distribution "default" database and promote postgresql as
an candidate to take that part thus
leaving our users out of yet another sunacle fiasco...
what is a "default database"?
you have to install whatever a software requires!
from the view of usability postgresql is crap for the
ordinary user in a long term - i am working with MySQL
since lobger than 10 years starting with 3.x and there
was NEVER a need to dump/restore data due upgrades,
not for minor and not for major-upgrades, the "mysql" db
with the users and permissions is the one installed many
years ago and the who db-folders are moved around Windows,
MacOSX, Linux over the years and i am speaking here mostly
from production servers as also development workstations
have fun doing the same with postgresql and explain your
users why things are broken after the next dist-upgrade
