Hi Leo,

Providing free Oracle support is very expensive for us in terms of licensing
and time to setting up a working environment.

We therefore only fix bugs in the Oracle backend from supported
(commercial) customers.

The GitHub issue you cite has 'help-needed' attached to it, which reflects
that we are not going to fix the problem.

If you are willing to attempt to fix the errors, we'd welcome your pull
requests. If you have specific questions, also please ask them and maybe we
can see what the problem is.
