Hi Honghui, We decided to move away from Solaris after Oracle pulled
the plug on OpenSolaris. This decision happened much before Red Hat
acquisition of Gluster. Problem is not just in maintaining the port,
but performing rigorous  QA of every release on Solaris. If any
community maintainer steps up for the solaris port, we will be more
than happy to back him/her up.
