Currently its a policy problem with the EPEL since if I build the MariaDB as a 
replacement package for the base mysql, I will be breaking the policy of the 
EPEL repo. However if I make it as a separate package that will reside under 
/usr/local they may approve the package.

But we still discuss that in the EPEL mailing list. 

Colin I understood from Karanbir that you are also working on the packages for 
the CentOS plus repo. If you want I can also take over the maintainership of 
the packages for CentOS plus.
