Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Any comment from the community?
Gustaf has long said he has no interest in supporting Oracle.What i have said for a long time was that i did not have an installation to work on Oracle and that i am not happy about developments that increase the maintenaince costs of xotcl-core and xowiki on my side.
And his shit is BSD, rather than GPL.
Now, recently, Gustaf has been encouraged to support Oracle
(Jon: read ... MONEY)
The platform situation has changed by the nice people from UNED who gave me access to their Oracle installation. On my side, I have developed an easy-to-maintain SQL layer. I did not receive *any* money for any of this work, i did this out of personal interest. Actually, nobody even encouraged me to provide oracle support (there was actually more discouragement). I have learned something during developing this layer, and i think the results are quite good.
Don, please don't talk about things that you don't know. And thanks for the clear words what you think about my contributions.
