MariaDB Server maintenance policy for 10.0



I just read:

It says the 5 year boundary date for support ending for 10.0 is 31 Mar 2019, and later goes on to specify why 5.5 has a later EOL, "The MariaDB Foundation may decide to maintain selected releases beyond the normal 5 years if they are in exceptionally widespread use. As MariaDB 5.5 is included in multiple prominent Linux distributions with a lifespan beyond 2017, the Foundation is committed in maintaining it until 2020."

Is SUSE Enterprise Linux Server 12, with MariaDB Server 10.0, not considered a “prominent Linux distribution”? SLES12 released in 2014, comes with MariaDB Server 10.0, and requires at least 10 years of support (https://www.suse.com/releasenotes/x86_64/SUSE-SLES/12/).

Just checking to see if the maintenance policy above is in error
