Sorry Lukas, I was not clear enough. I know you did SeasideInstaller
but SqueakMap is just used in a way to easily load a file from
SqueakSource. So, where do we put bug corrections on 2.7 branch ?
Maybe 2.7a1. I agree with you however: monticello repositories are not
meant for getting stable versions.

I think it's a good solution.

A possible enhancement to your "Seaside Installer" would be the use of
a fixed adress on the web which contains text files containing version
information. For example:


With seaside_stable.txt pointing to seaside2.7_stable.txt and
seaside2.7_stable.txt containing :


The website can also point to the same text file. So that, we only
have one place to tell where is the last stable version.
