[csw-announce] CSW ADVISORY: manual upgrade of pkg-get may be required

Critical notice: during the last few days, an updated version of
pkg-get was released. This version (3.1.1) has some kind of
interaction problem with some versions of solaris.
A newer version of pkg-get, 3.1.2, was released today.
Unfortunately, "pkg-get upgrade " may not function properly, to
get the update through the normal methods.
In this case, you may need to install the upgrade by hand.

This can be done by:

# pkgrm CSWpkgget
   (answer 'y' to all questions)
# wget http://www.blastwave.org/pkg_get.pkg
# pkgadd -d pkg_get.pkg all

We apologise if this is neccessary for you.
