Squeak-dev is the original mailing list for Squeak.  Squeak-beginners was set
up so as not to scare off people when the core team talks about "closure
compilers" and "browser plugin environments" on squeak-dev.

Feel free to post beginner questions on either list.  Just don't be scared if
you don't understand everything (yet) that goes by on squeak-dev.

If you're posting about a non-squeak Smalltalk on either list, it would be
best to disclose that up front, because the presumption is that you're using
Squeak. And while no promise of help is *ever* given (this isn't a help
desk!), you might even further adjust your expectations about getting help
with non-squeak smalltalks on a Squeak mailing list. :)
