Good to know. I will use JIRA if I ever have anything relevant.

I have no idea about differences between the two development models
and frankly, as long as the source code is open, I don't really care
who drives the upstream wheel.

For now, I'm just learning, thus I appreciate your comments.

I understand.
After initial confusion, which mailing list to choose, I deliberately
decided to target MariaDB list with my questions.
I may repeat the same discussion roll on MySQL one, but I wouldn't relate it
MariaDB plans. Certainly, as both projects share the same (initial)
codebase, it's nothing wrong to ask both camps about their
plans regarding features of interest :-)

I appreciate your comments Roberto, thanks.
