Hmm, haven't heard from them yet, they may be busy or on summer holiday.

I'll see about getting access to the SqueakSource install and playing 
around with it myself, or setting up a new install.  (Probably wouldn't 
hurt to learn how to install it.)

Basically, 3.9alpha is pretty much at a standstill until we get this 
diff generation fixed.  Should be doable, Impara's install does it, we 
just need the same configuration.

(Well, it's not completely at a standstill, we can do some harvesting 
of a few things into the new packages.  But the automatic updating of 
packages via mcconfig/mcd files won't work.  I don't think we should 
make the new process totally public on squeak-dev until we get that 
side of it working.  Alternatively we could just have it install the 
full .mcz packages every time, but that kills a lot of bandwidth and 
would probably hammer the SqueakSource server at we might as 
well just get the .mcd generation working.)

If anyone else knowledgable with SqueakSource wants to help with this, 
that would be great.
