Is this really a patch set?

The title of the post is a question taken from a MOS Doc ID 1189783.1 named “Important Changes to Oracle Database Patch Sets Starting With 11.2.0.2″. Yes, the first patch set for 11gR2 is out for Linux x86 and x86-64 (patch number is 10098816). It’s 5G in size, BTW. There’s no patch set release notes, though. I’ll update the post when they become available.

Update 11-SEP: the patch is no longer available for downloading.
Update 13-SEP: the patch is now available.
Update 16-SEP: patch set release notes are now available

    Yes it is big but if you see it says

    Oracle Database (includes Oracle Database and Oracle RAC)
    Note: you must download both zip files to install Oracle Database.

    Oracle Grid Infrastructure (includes Oracle ASM, Oracle Clusterware, and Oracle Restart)

    Deinstall

    So, i think this is same as oracle installer as normal and other one is grid home installer. So, rather then upgrade this is just whole package.

    I think this is good. For example i have 10g and want to upgrade to 10.2.0.5 i need to install 10.2 and then upgrade where in this case i just have to install once.
