MySQL - support versions through end of Oracle's extended support date so not forced to upgrade
In WHM on the "MySQL/MariaDB Upgrade" page, it lists MySQL 5.5 as being only supported through December 31, 2015, and MySQL 5.6 as only being supported through Feb 28, 2018. These dates correspond to the "Premier Support End" dates from Oracle as noted at the bottom of "Page 19" of http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/lifetime-support-technology-069183.pdf
However, in that same table, Oracle lists the extended support date for each as being 3 years later (Dec 2018 for MySQL 5.5 and Feb 2021 for MySQL 5.6). I propose that cPanel support MySQL versions through the extended support end date so that we aren't forced to deal with upgrades as quickly as we otherwise would have had to.
If this isn't done, then how discouraging to be on the newest MySQL version that cPanel offers yet know we're going to have to update in less than 2 and a half years and deal with that for all the sites on the server.
