See GeneralAdministration for how to manage repositories.

OmniOS takes a “layer cake” approach to packaging. The core OS contains the packages needed to build the OS, plus a few small frills (more shells, tmux/screen, etc.) Users are encouraged to either create their own package repos for additional software they want to run (and where they like it to be installed) or use repos published by other users.

Maintainers of add-on repos are encouraged to share their work with the community. If you wish to have your repo listed here, please speak up on the mailing list or IRC.
