Hmm, okay.
No developpers, no users, no problems :p

I've pushed a few commits to reduce C52 usage.

Hopefully it could be done soon.
How often is opengrok refreshed ? It's quite good to find that sort of

You mean OpenIndiana ?
AFAIK, Illumos is a sort of Linux/GNU team maintaining what was the old
OpenSolaris kernel and associated userland tools.

We then have different projects building on this base to produce complete
distributions. There's Nexenta and OpenIndiana I'm aware of. Nexenta is a
storage-server oriented system so they probably won't care.
That leaves OpenIndiana: http://openindiana.org/
