Sun opened up its build infrastructure they use to actually build the versions of OpenSolaris that they provide in binary form?
No. I was responding to motk's statement:
"It took a lot of time and effort for the ISIT team to build out infrastructure to bootstrap everything, for Legal to ensure that nothing lurked in there that could either bite RH or encumber the nascent Fedora project"
You might recognize that as the stock argument for why it takes so long to open large bodies of closed source code. In response, I pointed out that Sun managed to open a gigantic and completely closed code base (with a long history), in far less time than it took Fedora/Redhat to open up the supposedly 100% open-source build infrastructure of a 100% open-source project for public use. Different goals, yes. But opening Solaris was at least an order of magnitude more ambitious than what took Fedora so very, very long to accomplish.
It's hard to believe that people whom I know *must* be familiar with the situation are actually trying to deny the obvious and major foot-dragging that occurred for years.
