Could you explain the breakage in this release, i.e. why were smartos
and solaris2 platform support dropped?

I checked if there was already an issue raised, but found only the
integration of smartos support from a year ago:

The removal’s here:

I’ve been working (in the background) on getting better support for
smartos in cookbooks, and something like this seems like a step
backwards.

Thanks for any feedback you can give,
