I figured it was easier to ask their
Unbreakable Linux Team rather than just speculating here.
I asked their Linux support forums about Oracle's support
for PostgreSQL and Red Hat Database and MySQL as well,
and got this response:
"Oracle does not provide support for these databases, but
will work with respective vendors to resolve customer issues."
[link 1 below]
The response is from someone who works in "Oracle's Linux
Engineering team crafting solutions under the Unbreakable
Linux program". It's not an official statement of
corporate policy, but probably as close as you'll get.
For PostgreSQL, I guess "respective vendors" would mean
both the community here and perhaps some of the postgresql
support companies (some of which are Oracle partners).
Personally, I think that's a very fair policy of theirs;
and I imagine it's good that they'd get the upstream projects
involved rather than trying to support it themselves.

Email was easier.
