CONC-312; caching_sha2_plugin



Can I get some explanation, why was
closed as WON'T FIX ?


MySQL 8.0 implemented "caching_sha2_password" as its default
authentification plugin / method.
MariaDB doesn't have support for it so mariadb-connector-c cannot be used
for MySQL 8.

That makes problems for nearly every Linux OS, beacuse they chose MariaDB
over MySQL as the default implemetation.

I'd like to know the MariaDB stance to it.
Do you see it as an issue as well?
Are there any plans to deal with it? How?
