I'm still in the midst of The Travel Itinerary From Hell but I have to stop for a second to wish the OpenSolaris community a happy first birthday (and do click through to see the cool graphic). While it's easier to see the formal news, and there's plenty of life on the forums and on IRC, the best indicator of health for me is to see that there have been one hundred code contributions integrated into the project.
The real test of an open source community is not the noise, it's the code, and despite OpenSolaris not quite having a public version control system yet to make contributions easy, there have been plenty of bug fixes and other code contributions. The best birthday gift an open source community can receive are code contributions and OpenSolaris has a mound of them - delightful.
