A few hours ago, Sun announced on

the availability of the Solaris 8 source code.

You may get the sources via the internet but you need
to print/fill/fax the license aggreement first to get
a license number (whithin 72 hours).

If I understand the license correctly, modifications must
be put on the Sun web server to prevent sharing with

The source is in ZIP :-( Format and 183.42 MB  in size
so I expect that many parts are missing because they are
not owned by Sun.

As I have no fax at home it seems that I would not be able
to get access before wednesday :-(
