A tremendously useful site for Solaris/OpenSolaris/Solaris 11 operators, users and developers have been bugs.opensolaris.org. I don't know how many problems I have solved by using this site and I am sad to report that it has now been down for a well over a month. Now even I have given up hope that Oracle will restore the service, all information available is the message on the site: "This service is temporarily unavailable.". It no longer seems like a temporary outage and I would not be surprised if Oracle have cut this source of information too and is trying to do it quietly without any announcement. If that is not the case I love to be proven wrong.
This is another change that will make it harder for me to promote future Solaris releases and write about interesting technical details.
