Your option 3 does sound interesting all right.
If putting a link on Hibernate.org
could still be done and because we do
have control of including the Dialect with the solidDB JDBC driver, this
approach sounds like it would suit both yourselves and us. Also we would
be responsible for running the TestSuite and for ensuring sufficient
quality was maintained.
Let me circulate this approach here and get back to you and Steve shortly.

Re: [hibernate-dev] solidDB
Hibernate dialect ?
We discussed some other ways to deal with Dialects in the past:
I still like Option 3 -- make the Dialect available with the JDBC driver
distribution but I don't know of anyone doing this today.

In terms of actually getting it included? Well just passing the
testsuite is of course a first step.
Beyond that though I am a little leery of adding new dialects "just
because someone contributed (dumped) it". The reasoning is quite
simple. We have quite a bit of this type of "integration code" in
Hibernate already that goes unmaintained for long spurts of time. And
truth be told a lot of it deals with DB2 variants and WebSphere which of
course makes me a little even more leery here. So for this aspect we
would need you (or someone) to take ownership of this code. If you
agree to that we can discuss those particulars off list.
Also realize that the contributions *must* be LGPL. We have had issues
with that previously with regards to IBM employees and IBM's legal teams
from LGPL FUD. To that end, y'all must sign a contributor agreement
accepting the terms of LGPL and agreeing to your contributions being
made publicly available under its terms.
Also, how many Hibernate users are actually using solidDB?
