Open Source Packages for Solaris

Blastwave.org is an organization which prepares and packages open
source software for the Sun Microsystems' Solaris operating system.

Blastwave is the home of multiple Solaris-oriented projects,
including CSW or "Community Software for Solaris". The objective of
the CSW project is to allow Solaris users to freely have pre-packaged
open source software in accordance with specified standards. Software
is in SVR4 compliant package format and ready to run via the simple
pkg-get tool. This process includes a testing stage, open evaluation
and bug reporting and final release to a "unstable" and "stable" tree
