No sources, just wild claims, the same wild claims that came up when
Solaris was allegedly killed, yet there has been no statement whatsoever
from Oracle.

I'd suggest that excessively-optimistic claims when there's a strong indication that Oracle is sending Labor Day turkeys to its staff aren't helpful.

"That timing means that immediate media scrutiny was less likely and that regulatory filings under US States' Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) regulations will remain out of sight for extra days in jurisdictions that report them weekly, or extra weeks in States that publish monthly."

There's also a hurricane and North Korea in play. Have you ever come across the phrase "good day to bury bad news"?
