(first, I believe Jan means that MariaDB _Galera_ is now in Fedora)

I'm not so sure I agree. We have lio and tgt because lio is on RHEL but
everywhere else is still using tgt IIRC.

However, I also am not so sure that it is actually a good idea for people
to ship on MariaDB since it is not in the gate. As it diverges from MySQL
(starting in earnest with 10.x), there will undoubtedly be subtle issues
that arise. So I'd say having MariaDB get tested along with Fedora will
actually improve those users' test coverage, which is a good thing.
