Github repos with software for Solaris

Senior Principal Software Engineer

Oracle has a Github organization where we’ve been posting an increasing amount of source repositories, including six repos specifically for software for Solaris.

Three of these are for software we used to publish on opensolaris.org, then moved to java.net, and have now migrated from java.net to github:

  • https://github.com/oracle/solaris-userland/ — build recipes and patches for most of the open source software included in the Solaris package repositories, including software previously found in the OpenSolaris Desktop & SFW consolidations, and even some of the externally maintained FOSS previously in the OpenSolaris ON consolidation, such as Kerberos, SASL, and sendmail.
  • https://github.com/oracle/solaris-xorg/ — build recipes and patches for the X Window System software included in Solaris
  • https://github.com/oracle/solaris-ips/ — source code for the Image Packaging System used in Solaris 11 and several OpenSolaris-derived distros.

The other three are for providing Solaris support for some popular devops ecosystems:
