[squeak-dev] Re: Updating key morphic/etoy features in the main Squeak release

Hi Craig

Would I like to write a proposal?  Not at this stage - I am not  
sufficiently aware of who does what and of how things are done.

Can you answer about is this being managed and/or fixed and about  
plans, issues and people's motivations? For example - are you involved  
in this topic?

It is a topic that I am interested in, and I have a fair knowledge of  
how Morphic works.  I don't know about the processes of getting things  
into the Squeak releases however. Neither do I know if the current  
protagonists for the etoys system are wanting to be involved in back-
porting their work to Squeak.

Yours

Bob

Hi Bob,

the Squeakland Foundation, who are  the protagonists for the Etoys
system, would *love* to be back in sync with the Squeak system. I'm
personally interested in exactly what you described in an earlier mail,
a "useful route into introducing and teaching Smalltalk".
I don't think that we will back-porting Etoys to 3.9 or 3.10, but rather
with the next squeak release. This is no short-term goal, but I would
like to discuss how a reunion of Squeak and Etoys could be done.

Greetings,
Rita
