OpenSolaris Pending and Contrib Repositories Online
By user12607856 on Dec 10, 2008
With the official launch today of OpenSolaris 2008.11, we see two more package repositories coming online.
pending - contains packages contributed from the community or by package generation programs that have completed the pending repository process. Packages in this repository are not qualified and are for "use at your own risk".
contrib - contains packages contributed from the community that have completed the contrib repository process. Packages in this repository have gone through some qualification but are still at a "use at your own risk".
(Admittedly the pending repository has been there for a few days).
If you are interesting in contributing more F/OSS packages to OpenSolaris, then check out the sw-porters contributing web page for all the details.
