Thanks for continuing with this.

Good. If every it becomes a non-dependency the following should be moved
to a dependent package:

/usr/bin/mysqldump  /usr/bin/mysqlbinlog /usr/bin/mysqlcheck
mysql_upgrade and associated man pages.

on the systemd settings:

ExecStopPost=/usr/libexec/mysql-wait-stop seems to just wait for pid, in
the case of Type=notify I thought this wasn't needed.

MDEV-10646, https://github.com/MariaDB/server/pull/297 should be an easy

has been updated a bit more to support added constraints and better
support for galera configurations.


/usr/libexec/mysql-scripts-common includes mysqld_safe as a section
however this isn't read by the systemd invocation of mysqld.

Running mysql (the client program) with these packages fails to find the
server socket.

strace of mysql sees and attempt to connect to a null string socket
socket(AF_UNIX, SOCK_STREAM, 0)         = 3
connect(3, {sa_family=AF_UNIX,
110) = -1 ECONNREFUSED (Connection refused)

There seems to be a lack of compile time to support the default of

To be prudent, and to support other mysql client programs, including
socket=/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock in a [client] section of a config file
is recommended.


/usr/share/mariadb/my-* - recommend dropping these. "huge" isn't really
a myisam configuration or an innodb with a 384M buffer pool. Other files
are equally as comicly harmful. Getting users to actually read rather
than these wild ass guesses as config files will save them much pain.

https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-11869 might contains some insights
to systemd settings/packaging too.
