I assumed that Solaris/OpenSolaris itself is dead since the Oracle takeover and 
the decision by Oracle that the security updates are subscription only.

I added an entry for OpenIndiana with user nut, directory /etc/nut, and the 

<< OpenIndiana: historically, NUT was not included as a package in OpenIndiana, 
and an OpenIndiana Wiki entry dated 2013 
recommended user ups and directory /opt/nut/etc/.  The values in the table are 
taken from OpenIndiana's current Github data for NUT. 

I also added a comment that the default user if the build does not specify one 
is nobody:nobody.
