What has happened to the site I am trying to install binary packages, and can not access them via the packet manager. The entire site has been down for some days, so I can not access the binary packages. What has happened?

What?? Has the site been discontinued?? I did not know.

I can not reach the binary packages via my package manager. How can I install now? Should I repoint my package manager to another repository?

Well, something is still working :
I just installed a package with the 'packagemanager'. ( SUNWgcc ).
And gcc-432 : Updating worked OK.

Open Solaris is discontinued ( By Oracle )

The community fork is named 'OpenIndiana', see post #2.
