Note that even you said that the home page says "A *mostly* Smalltalk-80 and
ANSI Smalltalk X3J20 compatible language and base libraries"
The home page already says "*Squeak is not Smalltalk-80 and not ANSI
Smalltalk X3J20 compatible**!*" because it says *mostly*. Nobody has ever
claimed 100% compatibility.
The GNU Smalltalk documentation is for GNU Smalltalk. Period. If you have
questions about that documentation, then ask them.
I think it is perfectly fine to ask questions about Squeak documentation or
lack thereof. Just phrase your questions in the context of Squeak. If you do
not care to use Squeak then use a different Smalltalk implementation and ask
questions on the appropriate mailing list. This seems reasonable to me.
