SourceJuicer: How to contribute a package to OpenSolaris

If your favorite piece of open source software isn't available for OpenSolaris, there's a fairly new tool called SourceJuicer to help you get it there. In my very limited experience with the tool, the key to a successful build is the spec file. In Josh Simons' latest blog entry, SourceJuicer: How to contribute a package to OpenSolaris, he gives a very in depth description of each line of the file. He then walks you though his experience of submitting ploticus, a tool for creating plots, charts and graphics. Thanks to Josh, you can now find it in the pending repository.
