We discussed during the kolla virtual PTG [1] the option of removing
support for Oracle Linux, as a way to improve the long term
sustainability of the project. Since (from afar) OracleLinux is very
similar to CentOS, it does not require too much maintenance, however
it is non-zero and does consume CI resources. Contributors from Oracle
left the community some time ago, and we do not generally see Oracle
Linux in bug reports, so must assume it is not well used.

We propose dropping support for OracleLinux in the Train cycle. If
this will affect you and you would like to help maintain it, please
get in touch.
