The brief summary: Skunkware is a collection of programs which people have compiled for SCO operating systems. These may have been ported by SCO staff on their own time, by their authors, or by anyone else. None of them are supported by SCO. The contents of all Skunkware discs are available from ftp.sco.com. The current version may also be ordered on-line from https://www.sco.com/orders/.

This question is addressed in the Skunkware FAQ but I should probably update that entry and make it a little more clear. The FAQ says: Where can I find Skunkware for SCO ODT / SCO UNIX 3.2v4? All of the previous releases of Caldera Skunkware are still on-line and accessible via either ftp or http at : ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/Skunk1 Skunkware for SCO ODT and SCO UNIX 3.2v4 systems ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/Skunk2 The Caldera Skunkware 5 release for OpenServer systems (vintage 1995) ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/Skunk96 The Caldera Skunkware 96 release for OpenServer and UnixWare systems (vintage 1996) ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/ FTP directory for all previous Caldera Skunkware releases I should add that everything since Skunkware 96 in the summer of 1996 has been integrated into ftp://ftp2.sco.com/pub/skunkware/ under the appropriate OS subdirectory (osr5/uw7/ou8).
