Oracle Solaris Repository Reorganisation

Albert White
Principal Engineer

Over the past few years the release and particularly the support repositories for Oracle Solaris have grown considerably as new releases and SRUs have been added. Users who copy our entire repositories via pkgrecv may be downloading many packages that they will not need and this leads to increased download times. In the coming weeks we'll be pruning the Oracle Solaris 11.2 and older packages from the support and release repositories.

However, we realise that some folks might still need access to this (rather old) software and so that can be accessed via two new repositories:

http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/legacy/release and https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/legacy/support.

Note: you can configure these repositories as before, just specifying the new URI/Origins. For the legacy/support repository, use your existing certificate/key pair.
