MariaDB, a drop-in replacement for MySQL with enhanced features and patches. Built by core members of the original MySQL team, MariaDB also actively works with the larger community of outside developers to deliver the most featureful, stable, and sanely licensed open SQL server in the industry.

MariaDB is a community developed branch of MySQL. It's a branch of MySQL (ie, we are keeping our code in sync) and additionally contains the Maria storage engine, updated versions of other storage engines, and a wide variety of useful extensions.

If you want to be part of the development you should join the team.
