LibreOffice has been updated to version 22.214.171.124 (previous: 126.96.36.199).
Instructions for configuring the IPS repositories are here: quickrepolinks
pfexec pkg install -v libreoffice4-desktop-int libreoffice4

LibreOffice has been updated to version 188.8.131.52 (previous: 184.108.40.206).
What is currently on my workbench?
I'm looking for volunteers to update LibreOffice to 5.0.5 or newer: To get the new User-Interface and other improvements.
(Edit:) In the meanwhile I'll try to get LibreOffice 4 to S12 - the procfs.h compile issue is now solved and I'm fixing small issues as they appear while building on S12. Package compiles, will be uploaded in early version without dictionaries and language files. Once it appears on publisher "localhosts12" you may do first tests.
From time to time, vistors use the search function for the package repositories.
One or the other package or project name is maybe of interest to others as well.
If you find a package in the list below that is very interesting for you, then please let me know or write right into the comment field of the table why you have good use for such a package.
It can only help to get someone starting to work on it!
Package Wishlist for ready-to-install SFE IPS packages for Solaris 11, OpenIndiana Hipster and OmniOS
Please edit the table yourself. If you want to volunteed, please pick the package you would like to work on and send in your results.
Demand for Video Playback in Firefox
Since quite a while I had the idea to update the gstreamer modules for video (e.g. gst-ffmpeg) for Solaris. OpenIndiana Hipster added those a few months ago plus created a few new ones. The ffmpeg module enables firefox to play non-flash and non-html5 view quite nicely. Today on OpenIndiana only.
Dear readers, here is a draft version of upgrading OpenIndiana Hipster to the lastest version and then add the SFE publisher to install packages. Please read and if you already have access to the blog by username, *edit* this text to make it better. This is highly appreciated! I would prefer to let you improve this text, while I try to improve the packages. Deal?

Solaris 11 IPS Packages Repository (415)
(upcoming) Solaris 12 IPS Packages Repository (169)
OpenIndiana OI151a8 (and a9) IPS Packages Respository (376)
OmniOS IPS Packages Repository (88)
OpenIndiana Hipster (moving target) IPS Packages Repository (95)
To configure those repos as publishers use: (pick only the one matching you OS)
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhosts11 localhosts11
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhosts12 localhosts12
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoi151a8 localhostoi151a8
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostomnios localhostomnios
pfexec pkg set-publisher -G '*' -g http://sfe.opencsw.org/localhostoih localhostoih
These repositories are 1:1 copies from the build machines, so please expect contents to change frequently and as well, the content may have bugs. Drop us a note (in the comments, or by email) if a package works (yeah, we like that!) or breaks for you (we need to know that).
One day there will be a process which establishes a voting system that is used to promote packages from these development repositories to a public release repository. If you have ideas, how a test / promotion process should look like, please let us know (in the comments or by email)
What is it good for
These are development repositories but good for normal use.
For production use, you can compile packages yourself, or, help us building up a "release" repository with QA and a voting website to get packages promoted to "release".
Mirroring the Repository?
Please do *not* mirror these development repositories. You can download the package and prerequisite packages with special switch "-r" to the pkgrecv command. That saves capacities on the server. I'm sure you understand that mirroring 18Gbytes for the whole repository is not the right thing to do.
Once a release repository exists, you are welcome to mirror this (though we understand that it only makes sense in very, very rare cases).
Please keep in mind: You can install any exact package version if you specify the *complete* FMRI listed including the timestamp.
pkg list -avf postfix
To install exaclty that version and no other, use:
pfexec pkg install -v pkg://firstname.lastname@example.org,5.11-0.0.175.3.220.127.116.11:20160108T10293
This way, you could install exactly an *older* or a *newer* package then the resolver would auto-select for you. This enables you to help yourself, in case we have a broken package in these build repositories. You simply install another version which is working for you.
Drop me an email at sfepackages at g mail dot com - or create a useraccount here on the blog and leave me a comment.
Need additonal packages? Put them on the package wishlist here http://sfe.opencsw.org/wishlist!
Currently these packages are available in the localhosts11 experimental publisher for Solaris 11.
Packages of special interest might be: netatalk postfix dovecot vlc mpd, perl modules
Update: 2016-03-16 For Solaris 11 the perl-modules are uploaded, for OI-Hipster and OmniOS I still need to make some more fixes to get some of the modules compile (mostly those with C-code involved)
Currently I'm preparing a bunch of perl modules, some of them especially for perlwiki.
If you want more perl modules added, please drop me a note so I can create the spec files with the handy script experimental/make_perl_cpan_settings.pl and then test the spec files with experimental/testbuildperlmodule

Questions? Meet #SFE at #FOSDEM
Build a webstack in SFE for Solaris, OpenIndiana (Hipster) and OmniOS.
Which packages would you like to see?
What about nodejs as a separate stack? Nodejs 4.x.x LTS and nodejs 5.x.x
Please write comments and add if possible which application you want to run on the webstack.
If PHP extensions are necessary for your project, that would be of interest as well!
Read other news on postfix 3.0.3 with mediated symlinks
The postfix 3.0.0 package may have created a file conflict for the manpage mailq.1. The sendmail package from your OS-distro wanted to live in the same place.
The renaming of postfix's mailq.1 manpage to mailq.postfix.1 in the packaging stage didn't work any more, this is fixed now.
LibreOffice on Solaris 11 is available now from the build repository/IPS-publisher "localhosts11". Solaris 11.3 Users can set the publisher according to "Quicklinks" from the menu on the top right. Solaris 11.2 Users with no SRU installed have to upgrade to 11.3 (you want this!) or wait a moment until packages with relaxed requirements are uploaded. Please comment and spread the work!

I promise, one day there will be someone volunteering and re-write this article for you.
Update 20150710: The build machine for OI Hipster is running, the setup for the repository follows shortly. Once available, I'll post this on this blog. (Done! It is now online!)
Dear friends of SFE,
if you would like to have me building packages for the SPARC CPUs, then this is only one step away. Only make a SPARC build zone available to me. Well it's probably not that easy. As spec files generally are written in a way where you can build them on Intel and SPARC CPUs, the problem is today, that I have no recent SPARC hardware available to run such builds.
Dear friends of SFE,
I've resumed the automatic builds for SFE packages on target OS distributions Oracle Solaris 11 (TM), OpenIndiana (Hipster) and OmniOS. Solaris 12 and OpenIndiana OI151a8/a9 will follow soon.
You can book the RSS feeds of the IPS repository for your OS distribution here: http://sfe.opencsw.org/rss-feeds-for-all . This is useful e.g. on your mobile device to get notified if new packages or rebuilt packages appear.
[Update 20160107] LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 is ready, go to http://sfe.opencsw.org/libreoffice-22.214.171.124
Hi friends of SFE!
Currently I work on Libreoffice 126.96.36.199 to get the fixes for CVEs.
It is not a simple recompile, over the time I discover flaws in what the LO-build system produces.
For instance lots of libraries (*.so) use symbols form the boost_system library, but the makefiles aren't adding the needed switches /-lboot_system) to include the library...
Are you attenting the Chaos Communication Congres 32C3 in Hamburg this year?
If I manage to get a ticket (unfortunatly and surprisingly sold out since Dec 7th!), I'll be there.
I'd like to arrange a meeting and talk with ->you<- about SFE and Solaris and OpenIndiana and OmniOS. What do you think? Would you come to the table?
In case you are interested and to keep in contact, drop me a note here or on twitter or email, whatever is conventient to you.
