We're still maintaining these in Debian Ports. I have added the build logs for the latest builds above.
New builds will be triggered soonish when I have worked through the queue of package
dependencies that need to be fixed.

Oracle is still maintaining Solaris until at least 2035 and OpenIndiana is still maintained, too.
According to this article, LibreOffice 7.2.7 was shipped with OpenIndiana 2022.10:
So, I'm not sure dropping Solaris support is a good idea either.

32-bit SPARC is still supported by Gentoo, see:
Let me know if I can be of any help.
PS: I'm subscribed to this list, but I don't receive any mail.
