I am not sure this is a good idea. Having a meta-package for the server and not 
one for mariabackup may seem inconsistent, but users are different. A lot of 
people just want MariaDB and don't (need to) care about versions. Maybe they 
barely know SQL and just want to run a simple script. For backups, it's 
different. If you need mariabackup you manage a MariaDB instance, and you need 
to care about versions.

 Oggetto: Re: [Maria-discuss] mariadb-backup meta deb package
 I'm sorry but that's what not I mean. My message was just a suggestion, to 
have a "meta-package" for Debian repository, like we have a meta-package 
"mariadb-server" that points to "mariadb-server-10.2" (for example, if you 
installed 10.2 repository). In my deployment script, I just install 
"mariadb-server", without specifying version. I would like to do the same for 
"mariadb-backup". For now, I have to specify version of package : 
mariadb-backup-10.2. It could be nice to have a "mariadb-backup" meta-package 
to point automatically to the latest version available.

The latest backup will not work with your 10.1 server. Mariabackup version 
should match server version that you have on the same box. mariabackup from 
10.1 appears to work with 5.5 and 10.0, but this is merely by luck and by 
accident.        From: Florent B

any solution is wrong    I just want to install the latest mariadb-backup 
package, without checking version by myself (10.1, 10.2...). Exactly the same 
as the "mariadb-server" metapackage for Debian, which points to latest version 
possible.    _______________________________________________ Mailing list:
