Do you know if libmysql-java is compatible with MariaDB ? I see no libmariadb-java for the moment in archive.
I suppose there will be one as MariaDb propose Java driver on its web site. But will it follow the same rule with a kinda libvirtual-mysql-java ?

Just for the record, I've written down now this policy at
https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/MySQL/virtual-mysql-server and it is now
in effect as there was no other contersuggestions, and both the MySQL
packages and MariaDB packages in Debian already abide to this policy.
