New Question: MariaDB configuration file license?



A new question has been asked in "MariaDB FAQ" by aled_sage_g. Please answer
it at http://mariadb.com/kb/en/mariadb-configuration-file-license/ as the
person asking the question may not be subscribed to the mailing list.

Are the default MariaDB configuration files licensed under GPL, or is there a more permissive license for it?
The context of my question...
I am a committer on the apache Brooklyn project [1]. This automates the deployment and runtime management of applications to a range of different clouds. MariaDB can be one of a range of components being deployed and wired together.
We have copied the my.cnf configuration file, and templated it so that automated deployment of custom configurations are simpler. However, Apache does not allow inclusion of GPL/LGPL material [2]. We may have to write our own version of the configuration file from scratch, or delete our templated version and resort to `sed` commands to modify the default (yuck!).
