Oracle Support

roman.spitzbart
Hi,

Are there any official roadmaps or statements out there when a full Oracle support might be available? Or at least a explanation what experimental means - funtionally complete but not tested thoroughly?

I'm asking because our company is already running a number of applications on Oracle, so this would spare me from thinking about disaster recovery, backup, ... for the Wiki - the Oracle servers are already covered.

Thanks and regards,
Roman

None at this time.

If you're interested in either picking up testing and maintenance of Oracle
support yourself, or in funding someone to do that work, let us know.

(Ditto with the PostgreSQL support.)

Allegedly it worked at the time it was contributed. It's entirely possible that
it ceased to function by the time of the 1.6 release, as no one is currently
maintaining it.

Glad to hear that. I just commited two patches to make PG work against the
latest cvs version:

http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=385
http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1295

If this is not the best process to do this, please let me know. There is a lot
of other work that needs to be done, but the patches above should at least
jumpstart things again. Thanks!

I'm committed the updated/merged patch on SVN trunk.

I don't have PG all set up yet to test with, so let me know if it's all happy or
not...
