I use mariadb101 on the device, but if I try to install murmur, it attempts to remove mariadb101 because mysql57-client needs to be installed.
Can we not have a package with mysql? If people want to use mysql then perhaps a separate murmur-mysql?
This is for use on a raspberry pi 2B. I use packages on it, so creating a native port build is not an option. I attempted to cross-build under poudriere on an AMD64 but that takes too long (gcc9 is a dependency and has been compiling for days!)
As a vote pro-removal of mysql, debian does not include it. It uses sqlite3.
Log output of install:

Maybe time to replace the default mysql port from mysql57 to mariadb104?
I'm using it as the default mysql port for more than 5 years.

We could really benefit from a PROVIDES/REQUIRES relationship expression for dependencies so these things are simply interchanged...
The only option for users in this situation is to build their own packages with the default MySQL server changed. This is a systemic problem that is beyond the scope of a single port/package.

Agree. If somebody need non-standard mysql port or any port with non-default options - he must build this port self.
But we can create separate PR with replace default mysql port from 5.7 to 10.5m.
