"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
As I understood it on the fesco meeting which I was present to btw that
it was more like Fedora will only ship mariadb if no one will pick up
mantainership of mysql and thus obsoleting mysql as an result of that (
followed by a discussion what be the best way to do that )...
