    Why don't you include the last sentence I wrote: "So,we should have more
    fruits (like ZFS,DTrace etc.) ;-) "
    So, that's why I said it. Because, as all the time, we did it: Importing
    and exporting codes to/from different open source projects.

    As I mentioned in my previous posts: This is **not** in the hands of the
    "OpenSolaris Community" to make and apply such decision. Sun itself
    **will decide** it. Also, there are strong indications that Sun is very
    interested to make "OpenSolaris" at least "Dual-Licensed" with GPLv3.
