There were msgs about a month or two back in the squeak-dev ML about the 
lock down package not working correctly on 3.9. But, I think there were 
workarounds. Check the archives.

Can you not employ a similar procedure as squeaksource? Make your own

Or put a friendly frontend to Monticello pointing to your repo only? 
Maybe you could also send update alerts if the person is online to 
remind them to update.
