Default OpenBSD 6.0 & MySQL

I was attempting to install some 3rd party platform that required MySQL >= 5.6.

To my surprise, pkg_info -Q mysql turned up zero results for either mysql-server or mysql-client. It does turn up a huge number of items related to using mysql, but nothing to seemingly install the mysql server or client.

How the heck do you install MySQL on OpenBSD 6.0? What's stranger is, that I've run the pkg_info command on 5.8 and 5.9 too. How long has MySQL been missing from the packages? Last time I installed MySQL was in 5.6 and that was from packages.

It's been replaced with mariadb.

Default Wonderful

Is that a compatible drop-in replacement for MySQL? Meaning is my 3rd party platform going to find MySQL where it is expecting to find it?

Ohh, and is there any backstory on why MySQL was pulled from OpenBSD?
