BSD and Darwin derivatives The OpenDarwin project is shutting down. "Over the past few years, OpenDarwin has become a mere hosting facility for Mac OS X related projects. The original notions of developing the Mac OS X and Darwin sources has not panned out. Availability of sources, interaction with Apple representatives, difficulty building and tracking sources, and a lack of interest from the community have all contributed to this. Administering a system to host other people's projects is not what the remaining OpenDarwin contributors had signed up for and have been doing this thankless task far longer than they expected. It is time for OpenDarwin to go dark."

maybe I am wrong but from my understanding sources will still be available on apple's open source web site: http://developer.apple.com/opensource/index.html

That article was posted on 2005-12-02. Apple closed Intel parts after that.

Apple is not closing anything.

Yes, Intel branch and now since OpenDarwin is closing complete branch will close (at least source usability wise). You might have Darwin, but you won't be able to run it on new machines.
