I think this RFC can be rejected. At least for now, because there is nothing to do.

Or marked as merged as the rfc's outcome was the adding of it to the test suite?

I see that this topic is a year old. What is the status of this now? Mariadb 10 was a drop in replacement for mysql but since 10 there has been some divergence with mysql. I am on the process of setting up a new server and am considering to use mariadb with php 5.6 if it's possible. My questions are:

1) has anyone tried phpbb with the latest versions of mariadb (which had some difference from the latest version of mysql)?

2) Does phpbb 3.1 support Mariadb yet?

3) Considering the phpbb's goal for Mariadb support, am I better off still sticking to mysql?

Can someone who has idea on this give me some insight plz...

Well we test MariaDB on Travis: https://travis-ci.org/phpbb/phpbb
So yes, we support MariaDB.
If you experience any problem, just let us know, so we can fix it.

That is great news. I will be setting up a test server with LEMP stack with latest version of MariaDB in the next couple of days. Looking forward to test it with the RC5. Cheers and thanks for replying :)

Hi Nickv, are you able to test the same with mariadb + php 5.6 in travis? I see the test for mysqli with php 5.6 and mariadb + 5.4. Would also like to see if mariadb + 5.6 goes fine too...

We can't test all the possible combination of DBMS ans php version because we don't have unlimited resources. but all of them are tested at least once and if they don't fail independently they shouldn't fail together. (In this case)
