We gladly offer access to the Solaris buildfarm for upstream maintainers:
Just send me your intended user name and ssh public key. I would also
like to list you on the above webpage.

We have Solaris 8/9/10/11 with several compilers starting from Sun Studio 11
to Sun Studio 12u3 and GCC 3 and 4.

Best regards
