OpenSolaris.org is all about being an open-source community for collaborating around free Solaris code and OpenSolaris technologies. Now making OpenSolaris.org a truly open community, the source-code to their OpenSolaris.org Portal has been published, which is their site's content management system for handling their website and the different OpenSolaris projects. This application is written in J2EE and can be downloaded via SVN+SSH and online via OpenGrok. However, the source-code to the OpenSolaris.org Forums (powered via Jive) has not been published by Sun for licensing reasons.
