[Mono-dev] Mono, Oracle and .NET after 4.0

Mono's oracle provider is not completely dead. I have been making bug fixes to it, but since I do not have git commit access, I have no ways to put them there. I even started migrating Mono's oracle provider to based on ODP.NET. I should create a fork of it on github.
An alternative is to use ODBC.
Late this year or early next year, Oracle will have a private beta for a thin oracle ado.net provider. If interested, go to the ODP.NET at oracle. There is an old message talking about that.
Since it is thin, there is a good chance it will work on Mono on Linux.

Let me quote my post from SO:
The Mono Oracle provider is, unfortunately, more or less abandoned
right now (just as the [Microsoft Oracle provider] whose API Mono
was tracking). Since you are already paying large amounts of money for
the database engine, I'd suggest spending a little bit more and
getting a commercially supported Oracle ADO.Net provider. [dotConnect
for Oracle] officially supports Mono (and I had very good
experience with it), and [DataDirect ADO.NET Data Provider for
Oracle] is 100% managed code, so it should - in theory - work with
Mono as well.
