Can someone else (i.e. I don't care and wouldn't have the knowledge) not
build an install cd? Go through the pain of getting the working
binaries, and then use them to build their own version of an OpenSolaris
Express installer (or some other method of installing an OpenSolaris
system). Or what is missing, or what am I missing? Is it the installer
itself that's missing? If so it shouldn't be hard to knock up some form
of primitive installer which would work surely?
From there how long from there until we have a Debian GNU/OpenSolaris?
Or is CDDL even DFSG Free (the patenting clauses anyway makes me
wonder)? Of course whether it's worth it or not is another matter. I
guess both will be projects like rebuilding a Freely redistributable
Suse/Novell Professional image, a test of just how many people care.
