Debian on Solaris

I work quite a bit with Solaris lately and I really miss the tools that I
am used to.

Have fixed dpkg so that it works on solaris (no dselect sorry) and I have
rudimentary parts of a development environment going. Sadly only
dpkg- since is so complicated to port that I gave up on

Anyone interested in contributing WORK to this project? (You will reap the
fruits of your work in being able to actually comfortably work with a
Commercial UNIX version).

Can we set up a list for such a project? I wont pursue it further if no
one else is interested.
