Someone on the AOLserver list is proposing API changes to the nsoracle driver. Here's the comment:
As a side note, how many people use the nsoracle driver? I ask because pretty soon after we release 2.7 I'm going to release a 2.8 alpha with some significant changes and improvements. I need people that can help test it. I'd also like to know what the damage would be if I cleaned up the API a little. - Jeremy
I thought this driver was maintained by the OpenACS community, so someone might want to speak up, if needed.
