    Description

      We should investigate whether it's a good idea to drop Oracle support. Anecdotally it's not used very much, and costs us a lot of time to continue.

      I guess we should

      • write a small doc about the rationale for it (pros and cons)
      • poll all our registered admins to ask them what they think
      • if interest is below some threshold, then set a Moodle version for last Oracle support (in advance)
      • Advertise that fact widely
      • When that version comes, remove support.
