I cannot contribute since I don't use Oracle (I'm interested because
running Oracle is a sort-of rite of passage - people look at an OS
differently if it can run Oracle :) ), but I can do a part of the
logistics - I can put the resulting text in the official wiki, find
someone to convert it and add to the handbook, etc.
