Illumos will be the upstream. Illumos project started out as a branch
of OpenSolaris code, but is now effectively a fork of OpenSolaris
codebase. As an added positive, it is replacing all of the closed bits
(previously distributed as binary blobs) with open code. A major
portion of this is already done.
Note: It is the current understanding that development will be within
Oracle, but the code itself will be opened after binary releases.. so
we'll mostly see a big drop of code after every solaris release.
