MariaDB includes a User Feedback plugin. This plugin is disabled by default. If enabled, it submits basic, completely anonymous MariaDB usage information. This information is used by the developers to track trends in MariaDB usage to better guide development efforts.
If you would like to help make MariaDB better, please add “feedback=ON” to your my.cnf (my.ini on Windows) file!
See the User Feedback Plugin page for more information.
