yum install community-mysql from fedoraproject wiki:

"We would like to replace MySQL with MariaDB in early development cycle for Fedora 19. Original MySQL implementation packaged as mysql will be renamed to community-mysql and package mysql will retire as of Fedora 19. It means the name "mysql" will become only a virtual provider for compatibility reasons. MariaDB will become the default and will include Provides/Obsoletes for mysql, while community-mysql will only include Provides for functional packages (not -devel packages) in order to avoid ambiguity when choosing one from two packages providing the same symbol. The community-mysql packages will be installed after users explicitly request so. Also, we do not intend to support concurrent installation of both packages on the same machine; pick one or the other. The only packages, that will be able to be installed in parallel will be client libraries (mariadb-libs and community-mysql-libs). "
