Excerpts from Tim Bell's message of 2014-01-24 10:32:26 -0800:
> We are reviewing options between MySQL and MariaDB. RHEL 7 beta seems to have MariaDB as the default MySQL-like DB.

Tim it is worth noting that, for the most part, MariaDB 5.5 is going to
work 99.9% the same as MySQL 5.5, which is, I believe, what is tested
in the gate (since it is just what you get when apt-get installing
mysql-server on Ubuntu). I have only heard of a few optimizer quirks in
MariaDB that make it any different to vanilla MySQL.
I do think that while we've been able to make some assumptions about
this compatibility for a while, with MariaDB becoming a proper fork and
not just a derivative, we will likely need to start testing both.
