It's high time MySQL started to get replaced in the linux distros!
hi guys, quick start: drop http://dev.centos.org/centos/6/mariadb/mariadb.repo into /etc/yum.repos.d/ and yum list mariadb\* This is adapted from the Fedora spec adapted by Johnny for CentOS-6 and upgraded to 5.5.29; we have done some basic testing on these packages and they worked for us. We are now looking for wider testing and feedback about both the packaging, the payload and how its setup as well as any build issues. These packages are setup to replace MySQL on your machine, so be careful. And we consider these rpms to be of Testing grade, unsuiteable for production at this point. Post feedback as follow up to this email, or at bugs.centos.org/
