OpenSolaris community worried by Oracle silence
The OpenSolaris community is concerned by the silence from Oracle over its future plans for the open source operating system. In a blog posting, OpenSolaris developer Peter Tribble complained that Oracle has not mentioned OpenSolaris, apart from a single appearance on a slide in Oracle's five hour post Sun acquisition webcast.
Tribble is vice chair of the OpenSolaris Governing Board and says he attempted to set up a channel of communication between the OGB and Oracle. So far, Tribble says, the OGB has not received an acknowledgement that the request has been made. Earlier in the month, Ben Rockwood posted an open letter to Oracle asking for a roadmap for OpenSolaris and Solaris. Again, no response from Oracle has been forthcoming.
