User group and corporate-sponsored sprints are definitely an emerging 
trend this year for Python. So I think people would interested in the 
outcome of this process. Regardless, you can write something on this, 
especially because much of this is in the organizing.

As for the project itself, supporting Oracle in Django is definitely an 
interesting contrast between what is typical practice in Oracle and what 
is a direct translation of say what Django currently uses to support 
databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL. I for one am not so comfortable 
with the before trigger to simulate an autoincrement column, as opposed 
to just using operations directly on sequences. I'm sure this will 
prompt stimulating discussion at the sprint! You can certainly add this 
in a lessons learned section.
