Sun suing people for what, exactly?
For those out there who don't want to wait for a ports
collection to get underway (BTW, there's already been
a failed attempt to get the debian package management system
called "apt" to Solaris - http://snowcrash.tdyc.com/debsol.php3
I don't think anything's been done with it for a while), the best
offering out there is Phil Brown's pkg-get - It automates the installation
of packages from ftp servers. Works fine, I got it to work with
pkg-reloc to install stuff where I wanted too.

Yeah I'd definitly be interested. I think it's a great idea. The only
thing I worry about is Sun suing people.

i know we have sunfreeware.com to get pre-compiled binaries from, but
anyone be interested in a FreeBSD PORTS style system? i'd need port
to keep things rolling (i can barely be expected to do it all myself!!)
i'd really be interested in doing something like this if i can get
interest from everyone else.
for those of you who don't know what the PORTS collection is, email me
