Upstream for dtrace, opensolaris and zfs is Illumos. Note that ZFS generally follows Illumos development in a cherry-pick manner and not as a wholesale from certain release so the version here is usually outdated. Current ZFS on all supported branches are post-"Feature Flags", or also known as "version 5000".

Software also available someplace else

These tools have been picked up by someone else, or are also available at a different location. They evolved from *BSD though, and we might want to cherry-pick changes and bring them into our tree.
