There are mailing lists for all the communities hosted on opensolaris.org,
though I imagine it will take them a while to shift from cube mode to open
development mode. Can't really blame them for that. They've done a much
better job so far than Fedora did. :-)

There's already Schillix (UGH!) and Nextenta, plus some attempts at LiveCD
They're not doing too badly, and it's still pretty rad that they're doing it
at all. Hooray for industry acceptance of Open Source.
