FYI, Mageia has replaced MySQL with MariaDB already. Initially the plan
was to allow for both during a release, but as no issues were found it
was easier to just support only one thing.
Obviously, Fedora has a way larger install base (more things to go
wrong, etc) and I imagine Fedora is also used on way more servers, but
maybe interesting to know the experience of another distribution.
