[development] Microsoft SQL Server

Wow I popped out for a couple of hours and you guy's have sent a
stagering number of responses. I've had a look at the code and have
looked at the database.inc which should be OK to recode. I've worked
heavily with MS SQL and Postgres in the past and have had to do a bit of
module recoding in Drupal before to get postgres to work from the mysql
stuff that's supplied. On the Oracle fron I've also had a play with that
(as it's free to download for developers!) so maybe we should plan to
try and pick both up at the same time.

I'm happy to collaborate and join your group. I should warn you that
despite being a programmer of many years (and mostly Linux / UNIX based)
I've not worked on an open source project directly (plently of indirect
contribs) so you may have to forgive my lack of understanding regarding
approach etc.

Perhaps you could join my group and we could collaborate on MS-SQL? And
anyone else on any of the other DB vendors? I know we have a client that
uses Oracle, and they're itching to have Drupal run on their Oracle
back-end instead of MySQL, just for practicality reasons.

I'm interested in resuming support for MS SQL Server. I'm happy to put
the effort in and get it working but I'm unsure of how this should be
tackled within the Drupal community and whether anyone else has been
doing that? If somebody could let me know where to look concerning
adding bits to the core system / who to talk to that would be great.
