MariaDB is merge with MySQL every month.

For MySQL 5.6 we will do the merge in 3 passes (to MariaDB 10.0, 10.1,
10.2), as we want to re-implement several of the MySQL 5.6 features
with different, more efficient implementations.

If you want the feature in MariaDB 10.0, please submit it to MariaDB
too; We are happy to work with you to ensure MariaDB gets the best
possible implementation possible of your new feature!


PS: Nice to see that you are coding on MySQL/MariaDB again!
