Oracle database and grid home patches to install

This blogpost is about Oracle database and grid infrastructure software homes, which patches should be applied to which homes, and what it then looks like. This is fully documented by MyOracleSupport notes, but you will see that with version 18 and up this is unclear.

I keep a script-set that automatically installs and patches the Oracle database software and creates a database. This script-set is called vagrant-builder, and it can install any version with any PSU applied between up to 19.5, which is the latest PSU of the latest version, with a few exceptions: for and I only created an install for the base version and the latest PSU for the database, and version is left out entirely.
