Sure, that's only in the mariadb.org
We've added the folder specifically for the purpose of packaging.
The server rpm includes the server config file, the client rpm - the
client config file. The shared lib rpm includes the shared lib cnf file.
And yes, we've started (in 10.0) to package certain plugins separately
(CassandraSE comes in a separate rpm). They will come with their own cnf
files too. Even if such a file won't auto-enable the plugin, it'll have
plugin configuration options explained. These options can not go into
the /etc/my.cnf because the plugin might be a third-party, we may not
know in advance all mariadb plugins that a user might want to install.
And speaking about /etc/php.d/ and /etc/httpd/conf.d/ - I'm not the only
one who can see the benefits of a modular configuration system, as
compared to one monolitic config file :)
