I've updated an OpenCSW Solaris package, but now I'd like to revert to the previous version. How can I do that?

All old versions are archived on the primary mirror. To revert to an older version you can just remove the package manually with
pkgrm <pkgname> and then reinstall the new one after uncompression
gunzip <catalogname>-*.pkg.gz with
pkgadd -d <catalogname>-* add.
If you want to revert more than one package it is easier to make a local repository with
CSWpkgutilplus with the old packages and than overlay the local repository with
pkgutil. See the question about local catalogs for details.
