Subject: [gentoo-dev] Global USE Flag RFC: oracle
Date: Mon, 28 Jun 2004 17:12:08
I propose making 'oracle' a global USE flag.  Yes we already have
'oci8', but oci8 really should only pertain to Oracle 8i support.  The
change is more notable when packages like PHP have both --with-oci8 and
--with-oracle configurations that do different things.

I'm going to change dev-db/tora to use oracle instead of oci8, and
recommend that packages with option Oracle support use the 'oracle' USE

Please let me know what you guys think.
