Full disclosure, I work as a developer rather than on the sysadmin/devops side.

I've been using MariaDB as a drop in replacement for MySQL server for local development instances for years, and it's been completely fine - I have had zero issues with it, and specifically zero issues resulting from differences between MariaDB and MySQL in particular.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Questions about MariaDB

We have been using MySQL for our ArchivesSpace for several years, but our institution wants to shift us to MariaDB.  The university no longer supports MySQL - not just for us, but campus wide.

Will ArchivesSpace work with MariaDB?  If so, are there any problems or issues I should anticipate with the transfer from MySQL?  And are there any problems or issues I should anticipate running ArchivesSpace in the future?

I should add that this is not a hostile takeover (i.e., I am not being forced to make a change).  The IT folks are being very helpful, so any information that helps them to help our archives will be appreciated.
