We've got Oracle employees on the mailing list, that while helpful, in no
way have the authority to speak for company policy.  They've made that
clear on numerous occasions   And that doesn't change the fact that we
literally have heard NOTHING from Oracle since the closing of OpensSolaris.
 0 official statements, so I once gain ask: what do you think you were
going to get in response to your questions?

The reason you hear nothing from them on anything official is because it's
a good way to lose your job.
