Request: Change defaults from "latin1"/"latin1_swedish_ci" to "utf8"

The mariadb container defaults to latin1 character set and latin1_swedish_ci (!) collation. You can verify this by running:

root@mariadb:/# mysqladmin -u root -p var | grep -E 'character|collation' | tr -s ' '
Enter password:
| character_set_client | latin1 |                    ◀︎——
| character_set_connection | latin1 |                ◀︎——
| character_set_database | latin1 |                  ◀︎——

| character_set_results | latin1 |                   ◀︎——

| character_set_system | utf8 |                      ◀︎—— internal tables are UTF8 by default
| character_sets_dir | /usr/share/mysql/charsets/ |
| collation_connection | latin1_swedish_ci |         ◀︎——
| collation_database | latin1_swedish_ci |           ◀︎——
| collation_server | latin1_swedish_ci |             ◀︎——

The fix for this is to add add character-set-server=utf8 in the [mysqld] section of /etc/mysql/my.cnf:

[mysqld]
    character-set-server=utf8

After this change:

| character_set_client | utf8 |
| character_set_connection | utf8 |
| character_set_database | utf8 |
| character_set_filesystem | binary |
| character_set_results | utf8 |
| character_set_server | utf8 |
| character_set_system | utf8 |
| character_sets_dir | /usr/share/mysql/charsets/ |
| collation_connection | utf8_general_ci |
| collation_database | utf8_general_ci |
| collation_server | utf8_general_ci |

Note, only databases and tables created after this change will be created with utf8 character sets and collations. Any databases before this change, will still be latin1 and latin1_swedish_ci.

I’d like to see the default LinuxServer MariaDB container updated with the above modification so the default sorting/collation is UTF-8. If this isn’t the appropriate place for this request, let me know.
