The IPS System Repository [24919]
IPS All But Does Everything for Users Installing Oracle Solaris 11

In earlier OpenSolaris releases, after each global-zone update, each non-global zone had to be updated by hand, attaching and detaching each zone, Tim Foster blogs. During that detach/attach the ipkg brand scripts determined which packages were in the global zone and updated the non-global zone accordingly. In Solaris 11 each zone is installed as a linked image, connected to the parent image, which is the global zone. During packaging operations in the global zone, IPS recurses into any non-global zones to ensure that packages are kept in synch between the global and non-global zone.
