[Pkg-mediawiki-devel] Bug#781974: Include MariaDB in dependencies

Package: mediawiki
Severity: minor


The package currently has the following line:

  Recommends: mysql-server | postgresql-contrib

It should be changed to

  Recommends: mysql-server | virtual-mysql-server | postgresql-contrib

..as announced by James Page in Misc Developer News #37

Alternatively, if you prefer MariaDB, then the line could say:

  Recommends: mariadb-server | virtual-mysql-server | postgresql-contrib

Wikipedia uses MariaDB instead of MySQL, so I assume users would be
best served if MariaDB was the primary recommendation.
