The Start of Oracle Support

	So, I just checked in the beginning of Oracle support for
Bugzilla. Lots of thanks to Xiaoou Wu of Oracle for working on the
Oracle driver for Bugzilla.

	You can see our test installation here:

	I strongly discourage anybody from installing Bugzilla on
Oracle at this point, because it's not yet ready for production use.
It's at the same level that PostgreSQL was when we first checked it
in--Bugzilla loads, but a lot of the pages are broken and you can't do
upgrades yet. It will probably improve rapidly over the coming weeks.

	If you find a bug, come on to IRC and tell me about it before
filing it, just so we don't get a lot of duplicates. I already know
that filing a bug doesn't work on the Oracle install.

	We plan to have "experimental" support for Oracle in Bugzilla
3.2. It's possible that not everything will work perfectly.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla and Perl Services. Everything Else, too.
