That's great that OpenIndiana can be made to work with SunRays.

However, we can't provide legacy packages which conflict with our current desktop environment, packages which themselves either needed to be updated to the latest GNOME 3 versions (bringing a lot of dependencies, requiring a lot of work), or bringing long unsupported GNOME 2 packages.

We try to achieve modern UNIX distribution with the latest desktop applications and bringing those legacy applications forward goes against this goal.

I suggest your create your own SFE-like repo with packages SunRays need. Such a repo can be then linked from our documentation.
