Well, unless Oracle as upstream wants to get involved as downstream

I really don't see what we have to gain from having 2 conflicting versions
of MySQL in Fedora. It'd be a big mess not only for our users, but also for
the software in Fedora which depends on it. For the same reason, I'm also
opposed to the plan of having MySQL and MariaDB coexist for one release. We
should really move to MariaDB with hard Obsoletes and then ship only that.
