KDE software tends to require mysql as the database engine (either a hard requirement like Amarok, or recommended backend like in Akonadi) so things like these genuinely worry me:

Disappearing test cases or did another part of MySQL just become closed source?

Thoughts? MariaDB? PostgreSQL? …

p.s. I don’t have influence on amarok nor akonadi, just want to see what the people think
