Hello Gary,

In general, committers can only provide support on target hardware that
they have access to. None of us has any openSolaris box, so all we can
do is assist you in fixing the problems yourself. We will happily help
you through your issues as much as we can, but don't expect us to fix
and test the code for you since we don't have the target platforms
available.

I assume that you are talking about
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=175293
[dstore] Processes do not work on Dstore-UNIX connection to Solaris

You'll notice that this bug has been marked as "helpwanted" for the
very reason I gave above for some time. We are willing to help end-users
fix the issue themselves, and we are willing to accept patches. But
since we don't have the solaris hardware, and since our employers don't
use it, you have to understand that it is not our top priority.

Our official reference platforms are listed on
http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project-plan.php?projectid=d sdp.tm#target_environments
and you'll see that solaris has never been a reference platform for
dstore. Which means we cannot routinely test it. But we can and will
still help our clients. Eclipse is a "Community" -- come be part of it!

Please use the mailing list, file bugs or comment on existing bugs,
and we will help you getting set up to start fixing things yourself.
I personally don't think the solaris dstore processes issue is a
tremendously hard one to fix, provided one has the machine available...
I just added some notes on the bug 175293 mentioned above.

For your 2nd issue, "can create a project on opensolaris with the
eclipse sdk 3.4 but not with eclipse sdk 3.5.", it looks like you'll
want to file a new bug. Again, try to be as specific as you can.
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=Target%2 0Management
will file the bug against the right product.


Cheers,
