Absent Bintars from MariaDB archives
Archive URL: https://archive.mariadb.org/ Artifacts of interest: items matching "mariadb-10.x.y" where x and y correspond to stable release versions from https://downloads.mariadb.org/mariadb/+releases/
In the folders for MariaDB 10.x.y in the above archive location there appear to be missing bintars. Sometimes the systemd bintars are missing, sometimes the glibc and occaisionally the untagged "plain" bintars are absent.
Is there a reason for the absence of these files?
Answer Answered by Ian Gilfillan in this comment.
For 10.5, we no longer build with earlier versions of glibc, as all modern systems have long since come with later versions of glibc, so there's no longer any need to differentiate.
10.0.10-13 goes back to 2014, but it's possible the reverse applied back then, and we didn't build for newer versions.
For the systemd ones, it's also likely we didn't build for systemd back then.
For the others, it's possible there were specific issues with certain builds, but I don't have an explanation for those.
