365 days of OpenSolaris uptime

Well, 365 days full of interesting discussions, heated debates, creating a mindshare, forming a community - building OpenSolaris to what it is today. I am very proud to be part of it.

From my part these 365 days were filled (with no particular order) with:

1. Contributing a very first non-Sun bug fix to ON consolidation.

2. Contributing to Polaris project - some may remember a burst of posts this winter in the press on OpenSolaris/PPC kernel being built. While the meaning of this was quite exaggerated by the press it was a big step none the less.

3. Taking care of OpenSolaris Subversion repository.

svn:/export/home/imp> uptime
1:50am up 365 day(s), 3 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

which is breaking a 365 days uptime barrier today together with OpenSolaris !

4. Trying to find time to put more life into Israel OpenSolaris User Group.

Yesterday evening I found that I even was nominated for OpenSolaris Contributor Award!

So, happy birthday OpenSolaris, congratulations to all the community members - everyone of us put something into what we have today, so let's celebrate!
