I've removed them from Extra again, reason being that people
who'd want to use Oracle related packages most likely won't want
to add Packman's Essentials and Extra repositories, especially
on servers :)

I created a dedicated "Oracle" project on the Packman build
service, and moved all the packages from home:pvanek there.

Note that the Oracle InstantClient (11.2) packages are now in
the (unpublished) project Oracle:InstantClient (instead of
Oracle:InstantClient:11.2), with a single repository in it,
That way, as the RPMs from Oracle are the same for all
openSUSE/SLE releases anyway, we just need to store them at one
place on the server, much easier to maintain.
I also added Factory, Evergreen, Tumbleweed and SLE10(SP4) as
build targets on Oracle.

You are listed as the maintainer of the Oracle top-level
project, so you can build + push changes directly there, without
having to go through your home:pvanek project.

I still have to take care of the publishing (rsync) of the
packages in the Oracle project/repository, I'll let you know
when it's done. I'm actually not sure whether they should be
pushed on the Packman server and mirrors, I think I'll rather
put them on opensuse-community.org instead.
The repositories there don't have any mirrors, but that's hardly
an issue (IMHO).
