As I said on my previous post, I would like to see the lines that divides OpenSolaris and Linux, as blurred as possible (or deleted). Latest comments from Linus about the GPLv3 sounds promising, but even more promising is the response from Jonathan. So here we are, I now can see the day where Linux and Solaris can reach a common point.
Meanwhile, it seems that we can do better with our patch policy. Darren has already answered to the avahi issue, sometimes, is not as easy as Sun does not get it, but, some projects just don't get it that API stability decisions does matters to avoid crappiness, bugginess and bronkeness in the long term.
I would also like to point out that, Inidiana is a binary distribution project inside the OpenSolaris.org community, and right now is anything but a discussion mailing list and a bunch of good ideas and intentions, so nothing to do with Gnome patches for Solaris and Solaris Express.
I'm leaving now to attend the monthly Irish Python User Group meeting.
