Fedora 19 Nixing MySQL in Favor of MariaDB

kc9fyx Not necessarily (116 comments)

Bad reporting by Phoronix here. The feature has been proposed, but it has not yet been voted on by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo). It may or may not be approved for Fedora 19. I don't want to speak for Jaroslav Reznik, but he doesn't necessarily support the proposal. As the Fedora Program Manager, it's part of his job to post these proposed features to the mailing list for discussion prior to the FESCo vote.
