Hey guys, I need to patch our db's to the latest 10.2.0.4.x patch and we're currently on 10.2.0.3.x (where x=CPU patch). I'm curious how much "testing" time people build in when doing a patch? (versus a version upgrade) I'm thinking that a patch update probably doesn't require as much testing, but I'm not sure if I might be mistaken. Thoughts?
