illumos-nexenta is Live on bitbucket

From: Gordon Ross, Nexenta.

Nexenta Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that our
"illumos-nexenta" source repository is now “in the open” on bitbucket.
See: https://bitbucket.org/nexenta/illumos-nexenta/ for the code.
We hope to soon have mirror of this repository on github as well.

While illumos-nexenta is technically a fork of "illumos-gate", this is
NOT a "fork" in the sense of "we're going our own way".
We will continue to integrate changes into illumos, and will use
illumos-nexenta as a staging ground for such integrations.

The illumos-nexenta repository also gives us a way to satisfy the
terms of the CDDL for illumos-derived work in NexentaStor.
This means we don't always have to complete illumos integration
before we ship products using this code.
(This is similar to what Joyent and others are doing.)
