Conversations between different employees of sun and the public, there is a packaging war going on and at stake is the VERY FUTURE OF OPENSOLARIS

apt dpkg, ips, spkg, conary, IT IS INCREDIBLE THE LIBERTY OPEN SOURCE HAS CREATED

battle between conary and ips: http://tinyurl.com/6yyyoc

battle between spkg and ips: http://tinyurl.com/5wwdah

And there is more out there.

What is intriguing is that the spkg guy works for sun and helped create opensolaris but also maintains his own distro, the nexenta guys created the first opensolaris distro with a modern packaging system and other innovations like booting off zfs, and and conary guy has worked for free on opensolaris since the beginning, one of the only people like that left.

So all of these packaging battles are just a microcosm of a greater war, a war of ideologies and development methods and entire distributions. Truly a magnificent web of free creation caused by opensolaris being made open source.

that Sun plans to build in the OpenSolaris community in full
community view, and with full community participation."
