Effectively, might happen that once SUN released all their "closed
binaries" as open sourced, they might be willing to make SUN libc (only)
dual-licensed. Which should be enough to accept GNU/Solaris as yet
another Debian port without changing anything. But to do so, Nexenta
should continue its existence and prove that it is needed for Debian
If Debian community willing to have GNU/Solaris port as a part of
official releases, it is up to Debian community.
