Package Universes has some dependancy management.

I recommend starting with the squeak-dev images put together by Damien Cassou.


eCompletion, Shout, and many other developer goodies are in there to
start. Uses package universes to load even more.

He also has a squeak-web that includes seaside, scriptaculous, shore, pier, etc.
