Hello, I fully agree. As a matter of fact, I'm myself running solaris 1 
express for the time being... waiting to try the next openindiana 
version - when it's ready.
I fully support openindiana but I don't think most of the people using 
solaris 11 express consider themselves on the other branch of the fork. 
They just got it for free and keep experimenting each new 
[open]solaris||indiana, like I myself have been doing since snv_75.
So helping these people is, in my opinion, unwelcome, especially as the 
compatibility between solaris 11 and openindiana is still extremely high 
(and I hope it remains so).
Openindiana team, thanks for your work, anyway, and keep going.
