Support for MySQL > 5.7 or MariaDB
Given that I cannot see anything on the roadmap I'd like to ask what the state of MySQL support is. As stated on the Install page the latest officially supported release is MySQL 5.6, which has been EOL since February of 2021. MySQL 5.7 seems to work just fine but is not yet officially supported (it's on the roadmap for the next major release after 5.0!) and has an EOL date of October 2023 (aka slightly over 2 years from today). At the current speed of development I fear that MySQL will be EOL long before it is officially supported by Redmine. MariaDB is not supported at all.

Any news? This is getting more troublesome each day as we are now 18 months away from MySQL's 5.7 official EOL date, more than a year after MySQL 5.6 has been officially depreciated, and still there's nothing on the roadmap. Maybe it'd be better to officially depreciate MySQL support and provide a migration path to PostgreSQL?
