I have noticed this happening several times lately.  I think many of
us have been reading Tomue's comments as objects when in fact many are
meant to share information about possible solutions.


PS Bert if you ever need to stall before preparing a talk.... We still
need to get squeak into Debian proper.  It is packaged and in both
debian and ubuntu, but we still need to finish the process of getting
approval from the Debian FTP_masters to move squeak for contrib to

I think the work is 90% done.  It is still  matter of helping them
understand how squeak recursively builds itself and how that process
can be monitored for security purposes.  The standard packaging model
is pristine tarball + patch set.
