Hello CSW Users,

Stupid question.

I saw the RSS feed for the following announcement: 
"Versions 0.9.8zb and 1.0.1i have landed in the unstable catalog. Thanks, Yann!"

My company is requiring us to upgrade our OpenSSL from 1.0.1h to 1.0.1i.  

On our SPARC Solaris 10 server, I ran the following commands:
# /opt/csw/bin/pkgutil -U
=> Fetching new catalog and descriptions ( if available ...
==> 3712 packages loaded from /var/opt/csw/pkgutil/catalog.mirror.opencsw.org_opencsw_testing_sparc_5.10

# /opt/csw/bin/openssl version
OpenSSL 1.0.1h 5 Jun 2014

So, my question is, how do I get the CSW "pkgutil" command to point to the "unstable catalog" that the RSS feed mentioned so that I can get the "openssl version" command to output "1.0.1i"?

Thanks ahead of time as this service is a god-send for us!
