Are you wanting to integrate this into the ON consolidation or to SFW ?
If you are targeting SFW (and I strongly suggest you do) then you may
have better success getting help by posting a webrev of the changes to
SFW to the sfw-discuss at opensolaris.org alias.
I'm afraid I'm not personally skilled enough in SFW to act as your
sponsor. Though I've prototyped the changes necessary for star in the
past to integrate into SFW and you can find those in the sfw-discuss
If you are targeting ON then this is the appropriate alias to use, but
someone else will need to help you as I'm quite opposed to integrating
cross platform stuff into ON if it doesn't have to share private
interfaces with some thing else in ON - it just hurts the portability
and maintenance of that thing. Note I speak from (bitter) experience
here with Kerberos, SSH, OpenSSL and others being in ON.
If you do still want to target ON (or in fact SFW) you may have better
luck finding a sponsor if you post a webrev of the proposed changes.
Good luck in finding your integration sponsor.
