We just had commits yesterday in the 1.4.x branch to fix build issues on
Solaris. Though that thread has not been responded actively on the mailing
list, the issue sure is being addressed. Lack of a solaris machine in our
labs is partially the reason for the delay.

As a member of the development team, I would like to assure you that there
has been no commercial leaning of the product. GlusterFS has been a GPL (v3)
project and will continue to remain so. We value the feedback and bug
reports from the community just as much as from anybody else, if not more.
Lot of the features and decisions already have been driven by the community
