Just a bit of a reality check.....

FD: I have been using MariaDB for quite some time now
(I was involved in some early discussions on this list
regarding the (new and improved?) MariaDB offering).
*But* the last formal statement that I recall by a MythTV
elder was that MySQL is the officially supported solution,
and while MariaDB will be tolerated, and if possible
compatibility will be made to support either, if there is
a conflict, MySQL wins in the projects process.

There have been random proposals to flip that to be
MariaDB first, and tolerate MySQL (if possible), given
the reality of the current distro world, but AFAIK that
has not gained traction among the decider class.

As for the OP.  If you identified issues with the docs,
please update the wiki (it is, after all, a user contributed
effort, and it is only as good as people make it).
