I'm very pleased to see that. It should allow many people to
contribute to openindiana, and do so independantly. I'm packaging
a product now, into both SVR4 and IPS forms, with the intent that
it will run on Solaris 10, Solaris 11 Express, and Openindiana,
for both SPARC and x86.
One thing I don't favour is installing packages from the Extra
consolidation into a unique directory, /usr/oie in this document.
That doesn't prevent name collisions, but just delays them. Once
you add /usr/oie/bin to your PATH, duplicate names will be hidden
anyway. I'd prefer to install them in standard locations, and to
eliminate duplicates explicitly.

Is this only a repository of spec files, or is it an IPS repository
too? I would like to see an independant repository of IPS packages.
