Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Re: Oracle and PG versions getting out of sync

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
I agree completely with Janine. There's something called "consistency", and it's valuable. As long as OpenACS officially claims to support Oracle, then it had damn well better actually support Oracle. And if that support has caveats or limitations, then those need to be clearly, correctly, and, uh, consistently stated.

IMNSHO, if any individual developer chooses not to even do the easy, 2% extra effort stuff to help maintain support for both databases, then whether he knows it or not, that developer has taken it upon himself to sabotage OpenACS's multi-db support, and therefore to make the OpenACS community look like a bunch of sloppy, inconsistent dilettantes. And that's a Bad Thing...
