I'm happy to report that we've just released more installation source code to OpenSolaris
. What we've released today is the source code which corresponds to the Dwarf Caiman installer which appeared in SXDE 9/07
, and the Slim Install installer that's used in the OpenSolaris Developer Preview
. It also encompasses the SVR4 packaging code which had been released previously, but which is now being made available via the Mercurial repository rather than the tarball releases we'd been doing.
This is a significant milestone, as it represents essentially all of the source base that we're using in building the new installer in the Caiman
project and finally opens us up for meaningful contributions from the community. Thanks to Moriah
for her hard work on this, as well as the others on the team who helped with research and reviews!
