Dear list,

we’re actually using

# lsb_release -a LSB Version: :core-4.1-amd64:core-4.1-noarch Distributor ID: CentOS
Description: CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
Release: 7.2.1511
Codename: Core

on our database server using

# yum info mariadb-server Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
* EPEL_7: ftp.pbone.net
* base: CentOSmirror.netcup.net
* elrepo: mirrors.netix.net
* epel: ftp.pbone.net
* extras: CentOSmirror.netcup.net
* updates: ftp.uni-bayreuth.de Installed Packages Name : mariadb-server Arch : x86_64
Epoch : 1
Version : 5.5.50
Release : 1.el7_2
.
.

This version of MariaDB namely 5.5 is officially supported [1] until April 2017.

How does CentOS 7 deal with this circumstance ? What will happen when 5.5 runs out ?
Do I have to change the repositories manually [2] or does the change happen ‘automagically’ ?

kind regards,

Jan
