The beginnings of the project go back to 2002, when the Blastwave project was created. OpenCSW has been forked from Blastwave in 2008, and operates since.

The code produced by OpenCSW, consisting of build recipes and a package build system are published on SourceForge, and are future-proof.

Since OpenCSW is a community effort, it will be operating as long as there is interest in maintaining binary Solaris packages.
