I am sure that I have the patched olvwm packages stored away somewhere.  It 
wasn't as much as just the Solaris packages, there were also a lot of OpenWin 
based software packages included also.

That aside, no one has any love for freshmeat.net ?  I don't know when freshmeat 
started up, but I have been using it as a software resource since probably 1997 
or 1998.   Sure, there's stuff out there like sourceforge, but their web 
interface is horrible.

IDK, maybe its like back when Digg was in its prime.  Reddit was there also, but 
Reddit interface was horrible.  Now that Digg is (essentially) gone, I'm happy 
that Reddit is there.
