Closed ticket. As Alan mentioned, this is a packaging naming nomenclature brought over from legacy OpenSolaris development. OI package maintainers are either using what the upstream consolidator maintainer used for the build or adjusting their own packages to use version numbers (i.e. Userland/SFE). This is not a bug (it is by legacy design).
Bug #366: pkg is missing version numbers for most packages
Author: Brian Bienvenu
Assignee: OI PKG
Category: pkg (Image Packaging System)
Target version: oi_151_stable
When going through the list of packages available (pkg list -a) I noticed that the majority of them have the version tag set as 0.5.11. This isn't very useful as it makes it hard to tell what version the software in the package actually is.
# pkg list -a | grep xaw
x11/library/toolkit/libxaw4 0.5.11-0.148 installed -----
x11/library/toolkit/libxaw5 0.5.11-0.148 installed -----
x11/library/toolkit/libxaw7 1.0.7-0.148 installed -----
The first two clearly aren't correct, whilst the last one is.
