Yeah you're right, it's not as simple as it seem, they are only a few
pointers out there , namely the agile database group. make popular by
ThoughWorks guys , such as Martin Fowler.

We're working on the same thing , but in our case , the primary
database is MSSQL Server. The major problems is recognizing which
objects needed to in version control, properly mapping the
dependencies between objects, schema and test data, Test data is
particularly poses it own set of challenges, cause it also involves
the migration script. We're using a set of tools, namely NAnt and
PsTools, as well as SQL DMO objects.

Then they're thing like the "release stage", bronze, silver or gold,
and how this release are propagated into higher level, then how to
rebuild the gold and copy them across developers machine.

I'm writing this on my blog at
http://www.ivirtualsb.com/cs/blogs/erymuzuan, it's a work in progress.
