Package: mariadb-server
Version: 10.1.23-8
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

my data folder for MariaDB databases is under /home file system which is the biggest file system on my workstation. When upgrading from Jessie to Stretch I set ProtectHome=false in /lib/systemd/system/mariadb.service but after upgrading Mariadb-server package today again ProtectHome was set to true. I don't know the reason for introducing this configuration parameter but I would like my choice of ProtectHome value to be remembered somehow during package upgrade.
