Aurora is a Linux distro for SPARC-based systems.  It is based on the
Fedora SRPMs.  The second "stable" build of Aurora (2.0) is based on
Fedora Core 3, and the Corona Tree is an almost feature complete tree
based on Fedora Core 6.  (This, according to the Aurora Status notes.)

You can find more info on Aurora and download it at http://auroralinux.org/ .
