By reading the Wikipedia page about Solaris
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_(operating_system) ), I somehow
get the conclusion that PowerPC was added into OpenSolaris at some
point, and not only through Polaris, but merging it into OpenSolaris
actually. However, the paragraph explaining it seems a bit unclear, so
maybe I'm not reading it correctly.


It was never merged into the main OpenSolaris repositories, it was only
ever available as a separate project.  (The wording on Wikipedia is a
bit confusing there - perhaps it should say "which re-integrated the
relevant parts from Solaris 2.5.1 into their OpenSolaris project" and
add a note that it was abandoned before completion.)
