Received a sparc machine as a long-term loan
Some weeks ago I've got a sparc machine for sparc builds of SFE packages. The ILOM is already tested, but it'll take another while until I can setup the OS and integrate the SFE CBE (Common build Environment). Currently a long awaited side project is the cause for delays: A fully integrated CBE package for the build environment that turned out to be a larger project then I thought. I think I'll postpone that CBE-package and instead do a manual setup of the CBE now.
Attending FOSDEM in Bruxxels on Feb 4th & 5th
If anyone of you is at FOSDEM too, I would appreciate having a chat. In case you have really good story around Solaris / OpenIndiana OmniOS, I can offer we do a short audio recording. No large preparation needed from your side. I'll bring a nice audio recorder and two headsets, extendable to 4 people.

News From The Workbench 2016-11
LibreOffice4 and LibreOffice5 (new)
Our maintainer Pjama sent in new spec files for LibreOffice 5.1 and 5.2. This is absolutely wonderful!
Today I started to do a test-build on OpenIndiana Hipster 2016.10-like system to see first, if the LibreOffice4 in version 22.214.171.124 can be built in a reproducible way. Finetuning will happen during the next days.
working on GCC 4.8.5 / 4.9 / 5.4 with new install location /usr/gcc-sfe and compatibility symlinks /usr/gcc/

What is currently on my workbench? (There is a new workbench article 2016-08 available)
(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.
(Edit2:) LibreOffice 4 works on S12 - thanks to some few lines of code changes from a collegue!
