Among our customers who are applying PSUs, we recommend that they do the patch conflict detection at least a week before their scheduled patching window, and then aggregate all of their conflicts and present them to Oracle.  

From there, it seems fairly common that the overlays are already available, as long as there's only a small number of one-offs. Where the delays come in is where a customer has two one-off patches that are dependent or related in some way, and hence require a custom joint overlay patch.

When you've had to request one-off overlay patches for your PSU, about how long did it take to get them? I'm just curious if I should expect to wait days, weeks or months? (I understand it will vary from situation to situation, but I'm just curious what your experience has been)

If you have a one-off patch that is in conflict with the PSU
