More FOSS in Oracle Solaris

It is probably not a big surprise to any of you Solaris people when I tell you I keep hearing Solaris is not open to other Software vendors or even OpenSource products/projects.
Well, the biggest features that came with Solaris 11 and its releases were Openstack, openSCAP, and Puppet to just name the most famous ones.

Now, Oracle Solaris comes with new FOSS evaluation packages. It is part of the default release repository.

The Oracle blog post FOSS Evaluation Packages for Solaris 11.3 lists the included components and and points you to a guide on how to use/install the packages.
