This is exactly the mentoring offer I've been waiting for. I'll be happy to document what I learn; hopefully this well help as well.
I'm pretty good at building software, can often fix build bugs and port between Unix systems where they're incompatible, but I need experience with zones and a lot of help with making IPS packages and SMF integration.
