Oracle secalert_us have sent out emails to tell some customers about the quarterly patch schedule

I just got an email this evening from sealert_us - the Oracle security alerts team in the states - that tells me an email was sent out to all customers on 17 November to tell them about the new quarterly patch schedule. It goes on to say I may not have received this email so it's attached at the end.

The original email included at the end of the email sent to me is mostly the content that has been quoted in the various news reports I have mention here this last week or so. Obviously I knew already about this announcement but I would be interested to know which customers like me who have just received an email have only found out about the new schedule tonight, not everyone reads the Internet news or weblogs of course to have known about the new schedule already.

It is interesting to know if some groups of customers are only just finding out about this big event.
