This is the last copy I downloaded of the PPC source code

542 % ls -l sunlabs-osppc-src-20061002.tar

I believe that this was the last publically available source download, but if anyone can confirm or deny, it is appreciated.

The project spawned into a project for the main Pegasos 2 workstations we used 
from Genesi.
I had the source, but think it is still online.

By reading the Wikipedia page about Solaris

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.)
