Add support for MariaDB?

Idea created by Mark Willert on Oct 29, 2015
    Hi there,

    is there any plan to include MariaDB in the list of supported DBs?

    As more and more Linux distributions are moving away from MySQL towards MariaDB (RHEL/CentOS 7, OpenSUSE 12.3), it would be nice to have it officially supported. Being binary compatible with MySQL, it runs very well in my test installations, offering even some of the performance options Oracle wants you to pay for (thread pooling anyone?), so any plans on this?
