The OpenSolaris community has already stated that they do not want to
accept GPLv3, why not discuss this with them if you want to try to
change their minds?
It was just an example came to my mind at first when thinking about "Dual Licensing" or upgrading Linux Kernel to the GPLv3. Yeah maybe,the "OpenSolaris Community" do not want GPLv3. But; IMHO, it is in the hands of "Sun" not the "OpenSolaris Community".
