It is different from upstream MySQL in many ways as that page explains.

bla - if it woul dbe just a recompile from the mysql sources it would not be a fork - in 99.9% of all cases IT IS a drop-in-replacement - if you have REAL issues name them - period

    it is and where it isn't unintentional report it and help to get it
    fixed, that said from a admin which dozens of MariaDB servers where
    the datadir was originally created on Windows under MySQL 3.x, got
    moved in prduction for some years to MacOS, later to Linux and now
    is running MariaDB 10.1 just fine with the same datadirs and the

        It certainly can. It just doesn't. Because we merge from 5.6 into
        MariaDB feature by feature, and nobody has requested this
        feature so far. At least I couldn't find it in Jira.
