I shipped Squeak 4.0, I suppose that's probably the biggest thing I've done
for the community thus far; though I've pushed changes through the inbox
into Squeak. Lately I've been hacking a lot on Cuis. I do test automation
for a living, and it keeps me quite busy, though I think I can shave 10
minutes off on an average day.

I'm not sure that I can drop what I'm doing mid-day to respond to a crisis,
though, now that I think about it; I don't generally have that kind of
flexibility at work right now, and I won't be able to do any work whatsoever
from the company network. I imagine many other folks out there will have
similar constraints, and I do think this indicates that we should offload as
much of this load as is convenient to hosted solutions. I note that
http://code.google.com/s/squeak/ is not taken. I think whether or not to do
something like this died in the bikeshed on squeak-dev. What do you think

I'd like to kill Mantis in favor of the Google hosted thing, for example. It
works fine, it mostly administers itself, etc. Seems to work okay for the
Pharo community.

Ken: I'm particularly interested in which services have consumed the most of
your time.

Steven: I agree, it's probably worth doing some automated monitoring type
stuff. It's not the ten minutes, it's the 45 minutes one spends clearing the
table to dine on the ten minutes:) It might even be fun to make a Squeak
community dashboard that shows some stats on the various systems we use, but
for now I think the best thing we can do is document what we have out there
