Subject Re: Database support

Volunteers for each database could be an alternative.  Maybe volunteering
for database support would be a new requirement for committers?  :-)  Like
in your case, you seem to have a vested interest in Oracle.  And, I tend
towards DB2 and Derby.  But, what do we do about other mainstream databases
that don't have committers on our project?  I wonder if soliciting on some
of these other sites would help?

Maybe a wiki page outlining the current database support along with the
OpenJPA Point of Contact would be a good first step?

Still soliciting ideas...
