A memo that was ostensibly leaked to the Oracle Solaris engineering team pulls the rug out from OpenSolaris.
“We will no longer distribute source code for the entirety of the Solaris operating system in real-time while it is developed, on a nightly basis,” the memo states. However, “we will distribute updates to approved CDDL or other open source-licensed code following full releases of our enterprise Solaris operating system.”
The memo was posted on Anonymouse.org this morning, and signed Mike Shapiro, a distinguished engineer at Sun Labs, Bill Nesheim, Solaris vice president, and Chris Armes, director of Solaris revenue product engineering software.
