Please consider not looking at directly replacing the my-*.cnf files,
but rather updating the my.cnf default/baseline config installed by
some of the packages as discussed previously. We can then work on also
incorporating that config into the other packages. For existing
installs getting updated, a copy of the file can be put in to all
packages under another name.
Naturally the old my-*.cnf need to disappear. But that's a separate
From my experience, it's fairly imporant to put a baseline config in
place, since many people will not (at least initially) adjust the
config. Most distros require some kind of config anyway to put some
things in the right place for their distro layout, so a my.cnf must
exist anyway - it's not a matter of creating one by copying the
sample, it would replace one already there. So you might as well make
that one there more sane from the start, and that's what the above does.
