Oracle's Solaris comes with Rust pre-installed

Found this via a google search for "cargo vendor".

cargo commands are listed as Solaris commands, which means that Rust is probably pre-installed there.

EDIT: originally posted about FOSS license violation, but turned out to be a false alarm.

Unsure what the original license says, but at the bottom there's this:

NOTES

  Source code for open source software components in Oracle Solaris can
  be found at https://www.oracle.com/downloads/opensource/solaris-source-
  code-downloads.html.

  This software was built from source available at
  https://github.com/oracle/solaris-userland. The original community
  source was downloaded from  https://static.rust-
  lang.org/dist/rustc-1.53.0-src.tar.xz.

  Further information about this software can be found on the open source
  community website at http://www.rust-lang.org/.

.. which doesn't, as you say, directly mention the original license, but it does point you to it.

..... Wait .. Solaris comes with Rust preinstalled these days?

True. They do point and don't hide the sources. False alarm.
Thanks for pointing it out.
