You can install SVR4 packages on Solaris 11, but by doing that you lose the functionality and benefits of IPS. Is there an IPS OpenCSW package catalog?

There isn't an OpenCSW IPS repository as of April 2014. Over the last few years there was very little progress in this area. The only reason for it not existing is that nobody has implemented it. Unless somebody steps up and implements it, IPS packages are unlikely to happen. So do step up! We're open to contributions!
