I believe the best exposure would be by getting into one of the  
Indiana-style software repositories for OpenSolaris, and last time I  
checked Blastwave didn't have one. There was one on  
pkg.sunfreeware.com though. For Blastwave's pkg-get you need to know  
what you are searching for, whereas the new ipkg system comes with a  
graphical tool to browse and search available packages.

But having more recent packages for Blastwave users would be  
beneficial as well, of course. Jonel as past maintainer didn't react  
to mails via blastwave some time ago.
