Hi Otto, Thank you for working on this.

Though it may work in common use cases, I think that it needs to be impossible for MariaDB packaging to activate the my.cnf symlink for mariadb.cnf except when one of the server packages is installed. Because it's only the server packages that conflict with each other across the variants, and this is the only mechanism preventing both mariadb.cnf and mysql.cnf being activated at once. Otherwise, for example, I could still install mariadb-common on a system with mysql-server-5.7 installed, and it would still mess up. So I think the configure-symlinks code needs to move from mariadb-common to mariadb-server-10.1 in addition. Robie
