To take advantage of an automated build system we need at least one of  

(1) automatic commits of version upgrades done by upstream_watch
(2) release process based on automatic builds

The implementation of (1) would take the burden off a maintainer
to do routine updates and concentrate on testing.

For (2) we need to formalize the build recipe for a package in terms
of Solaris 8/10 and 32/64 bit assembly. This is planned for
mGAR v2-pbuild.

BTW: The issues some weeks ago were not induced by packaging activity,  
but by
ZFS bug #6596237. It will be finally fixed with patch 141414-08 to be
released on 2009-08-07.

Best regards
