I have a working 3.9-Seaside/Magma/Pier image here (without "testing" 
packages, however). If you want I can tell you exactly which package 
versions are in it. Basically it's the following:
- Seaside 2.6b1 and its requirements
- Latest Scriptaculous
- Magritte, Pier and Magma (form MagmaTester repository) packages: 
Latest labelled "kph" if one exists, latest otherwise

The last part is important: if you load "lr" Pier packages for example 
they won't work with Magma because only the "kph" packages have the 
neccessary methods.

One last: to be able to actually persist pages I had to rename 
PRMagmaPersistency>>#doing:critical: to #command:critical:. My guess is 
that Keith Hodges renamed the method, but somehow the older version of 
PRMagmaPersistency got in the repository. If Keith is reading this: if 
my guess is wrong and it's a bad idea renaming the method, please tell 
me so.

HTH, Elfi
