OpenSolaris IPS repository offerings growing

I’m really glad to see the OpenSolaris IPS repositories growing with the amount of available packages.  Large network repositories of thousands of software packages make Fedora and Ubuntu the great, easy to use Linux distributions that they are.  Extending the amount of packages available to OpenSolaris just builds upon this usability!

A graph explaining the IPS repository structure, the forum post showing how to enable the pending repository, and a complete list of the 1708 pending IPS repository packages can be found here.

The OpenSolaris community really needs people to assist in finding / submitting any found bugs within these packages.  If you were looking for a way to assist the OpenSolaris community, here’s your chance!
