mysql_ugprade is often needed once on upgrade to support new features.

Please explan, what did

Sorry - I meant "ever" not "every" in the following. So as a dependent
package is good and there isn't a requirement for another subpackage.

$ /usr/libexec/mysqld --help --verbose | head
The following groups are read: mysqld server mysqld-10.1 mariadb
mariadb-10.1 client-server galera

parsing other bits:

4) Install the following as part of a my.cnf in some way


5) /usr/share/mariadb/my-* - recommend dropping these

6) Updating the systemd config to closer to upstream

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


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