Thanks to Brant Bknudson for pointing out that DB2 Express-C doesn't 
have a time restriction:


"It is a fully licensed product available for free download. It does not 
have any time restrictions."

I must have mistaken that with Enterprise Server Edition that we were 
using in house for some bigger deployments for CI with Tempest.

So it sounds like Express-C is what we could use to get 
sqlalchemy-migrate unit tests running against DB2 using the community 
infrastructure (I hope), I just need some help with getting that going. 
I know Roman got the migrate UT running for MySQL and PostgreSQL here:


I'll try working with Roman, Monty and any infra guys that will talk to 
me to get this going.
