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
