No MariaDB MaxScale in Debian

2016.08.18 by Norbert Tretkowski in #debian #mysql

Last weekend I started working on a MariaDB MaxScale package for Debian, of course with the intention to upload it into the official Debian repository.

Today I got pointed to an article by Michael "Monty" Widenius he published two days ago. It explains the recent license change of MaxScale from GPL so BSL with the release of MaxScale 2.0 beta. Justin Swanhart summarized the situation, and I could not agree more.

Looks like we will not see MaxScale 2.0 in Debian any time soon...
