Thank you for clarifying that. I'm sure it has been discussed many
times before so I apologise if I'm going over well trodden ground.

Is the code of OpenSolaris considered free by the FSF?

It is released under a number of licences but mainly the CDDL [0]. The
OSI approves this as Open Source but does the FSF consider this to be
an acceptable free software licence?
