Hi :)
MariaDb is an excellent back-end for Base and we might be able to build up the team that is working 
on Base by building up some sort of relationship with them.  

MariaDB is to MySql as
LibreOffice is to OpenOffice
except that MySql is still owned Oracle so the relationship is not particularly friendly.  It is 
developing faster than MySql was allowed to.  It has almost all the original MySql people including 
the original people that started MySql in the first place.  It is a drop-in replacement for MySql.  

MariaDb is a good back-end for corporate or large organisations that need a decent and hefty 
back-end.  It's probably a lot heftier than small clubs or individuals need for a little Contacts 
Mail-Merge List.  The MySql connector seems to work well with it.  

Regards from
Tom :)
