FreeBSD vendor branches of opensolaris vs. illumos

Hey Martin

as you might be aware we're working on the svn2git conversion and
there are some branch copies in the SVN repo that I'd like to
understand better (because we're dropping the distinction between
vendor and vendor-sys).

So we have e.g. these commits

r238576 | mm | 2012-07-18 11:15:58 +0200 (Wed, 18 Jul 2012) | 2 lines
Changed paths:
   D /vendor/illumos/dist

Remove vendor/illumos/dist for repopulation from latest vendor/opensolaris

r238577 | mm | 2012-07-18 11:16:47 +0200 (Wed, 18 Jul 2012) | 2 lines
Changed paths:
   A /vendor/illumos/dist (from /vendor/opensolaris/dist:238566)

Copy vendor/opensolaris/dist to vendor/illumos/dist


Can you clarify the history with these vendors? What should the final
state look like?
Why was illumos imported first (r237833) and then copied-over later on
The way I see it (purely from what tags we have):

- First there was opensolaris, we did imports and added some tags
- It got renamed, we copied (instead of moved) things over to vendor/illumos
- ???

So essentially, should I collapse this all into /vendor/illumos and
the opensolaris vendor is obsolete?
