Last Thursday I readÂ that Oracle postpones the upcoming CPU patches. They state:
There is a change in the previously announced release date of the October 2009 Critical Patch Update.
Since many Oracle customers with responsibility for deploying the Critical Patch Update within their respective organizations will be attending Oracle OpenWorld October 11-15, 2009, the October 2009 Critical Patch Update originally scheduled to be published on Tuesday, October 13th 2009, will be released on October 20th 2009.
Please note: this date change only impacts the October 2009 Critical Patch Update. As usual, Oracle will issue a pre-release announcement on the Thursday before the publication of the Critical Patch Update (Thursday, October 15th). All other aspects of the Critical Patch Update (where to find the documentation, how to download the patches, etc.) remain the same.

A good reason would be that there are no important patches.. aren’t there..?
