Hi guys,
   i'am trying to get a good release of the oracle backend for
the 1.5.5 release: i would like to work on the 1.5.5 files and i am
a bit confused on how to do it, may be someone can help:

svn co 1.5.5 tag ?

Right now Emmanuel is working on a schema branch that he needs to replace the trunk with.  I think you should work on this branch if possible (flux of changes should have been reduced).  The branch is here and this is the check out command:

svn co schema-branch

This will check out everything including the ADS dependencies including the shared, daemon and installer projects into a single folder.

Talk to Emm before you begin just to confirm his position on this.  THings got delayed for him due to his famous beer drinking laptop finally dropping dead.
should i check in the sources into the svn ?

Yep go for it.  Just make sure things compile.  Maybe you can add a profile called 'oracle' that includes all the oracle based dependencies and your project to build.
If yes, which should be name of the directory (eg. core-oracle or backend-oracle or...) ?

How is oracle-partition to use same pattern as jdbm-partition and ldif-partition?
core-cursors have been moved to shared-cursors, right ?

Yep.  You can find it here:

However the svn-external directives in the folder for your first check out will pull the correct branch or trunk of shared corresponding to the schema branch that Emm is working on.

Thanks for starting this up again.  I'm sure many people will want to use this partition.
