Seems that the most detailed and informed response is this:
from someone related directly with the project and who knows about the
porting decision. So, for me, is about how to get an open and proactive
developer community. Seems that Sophie 1.0 has not this (in fact I
remember getting no answer in their community forums) and migrating for
a more popular language was thought as a way to get a more active
developer community. So the question when you're going to start a
project like this is who to get a healthy community. Scratch for example
has both, a user and a developer communities even if is not made in a
pretty popular language. Now that I'm reading Pharo by Example, inspired
in Squeak by Example, I think that is needed to have something like
Pharo/Squeak by projects so people with an understanding of the basics
can know how to make things like Sophie or Scrath in Pharo/Squeak Smalltalk.
