OI datasets for SmartOS/vmadm/dsadm
It would be very valuable to have available OpenIndiana datasets that SmartOS's dsadm & vmadm tools can work with. Not just a basic OI text installation, but also something like a canned build zone. I think this would be useful for consumption of end users to deploy OpenIndiana zones under the SmartOS environment, but also for development, packaging, and QA purposes. Additionally, I think it can help with advocacy of OpenIndiana in the broader Illumos community, as someone just starting out with SmartOS can very easily provision OpenIndiana zones. Ideally, I think, the distribution templates would be built at the same time as the ISO images.

Although the idea is certainly of interest it cannot be implemented for now.
When Hipster is streamlined and if interest is raised this should be reconsidered as a community effort.
