They are already ready in the sense that they're usable (I use them myself).
The "unstable" part might be:
- their location
- "fetching scripts" (more support for modules should be added)
- we need an intermediate testing step (to confirm that minimals work
before updating the whole tree to the public)

I have no idea about the dates. But as long as you don't neet to rely
on the location to stay the same, feel free to use them and provide

Almost everything needed for Sun is there already, except for the
recent versions of LuaTeX & XeTeX (and probably some scripts including
setuptex, first-setup.sh and mtx-update.lua need a minor update to
recognise the platform properly). (pdfTeX & metapost are also from TeX
Live, but that's not a problem)

That's something that Arthur (or you?) should provide. I cannot make
binaries for solaris myself.
