Edward Stangler talks about running catpatch

I Just noticed on - (broken link) orablogs that Edward Stangler had made a useful post about running catpatch.sql or rather the number of databases he has seen where this script has no0t been run. This should usually be run after applying patches, Edward talks about upgrades that h has seen. He also promises a few more blogs on this subject and more details as to why not running this script is an issue.

I will watch out for these entries myself as they sound interesting. This should be a good subject as a lot o0f people out there are applying the patch from alert 68 still and also are looking at adding the patch set (and re-applying alert 68).

Thanks Edward for this great reminder.
