>I do not know who ported toothpick to squeak
This answer is easy. Joseph originally provided a Squeak port on the
Toothpick side  beside others (VW, VAST, ...)
>I don't know anything about the Squeak port of toothpick and
>its' problems. I've NEVER been contacted by anyone about it
Maybe I can bring some light into the issue here:
After Joseph announced Toothpick in 2006 I tried the first
Squeak version which was available from his project website .
This version was packaged as change sets and provided as a
simple ZIP (and it looks like the site still contains this changeset
filout from Squeak3.8 in 2005). Maybe Joseph used his famous
Rosetta project to create it.
Since I know Joseph personally from 1st CampST and our Smallscript
work I contacted him via mail to get permission to convert the
Squeak code into Monticello format and make it also available
on Squeaksource  and Squeakmap . This would allow people
to easily download and use his code using the newer packaging
systems like SqueakMap package loading and monticello versioning.
I also created a wiki page .
I was glad he gave me the permission (via mail) to do so - so I
just converted the code to Monticello format and registered
the projects on SqMap and SqSource so it can be easily accessed
by the Squeak community directly from within the squeak image.
(That's like importing code into Store to make an old style changeset
more accessible to VisualWorks users).
The code is still under Josephs BSD license and he is clearly
stated as original author .
After that I announced it on squeak-dev mailinglist  clearly
saying that it's from Joseph and is now available as Monticello
package for future contributions and since it is available
for various Smalltalks any further contribution should not be limited
to Squeak. (Joseph got a CC of this announcement).
So there is no other port beside the one Joseph provided on
the toothpick side  - but now also available in Monticello
Meanwhile nobody ever contributed so far - so the code is
still the same as provided by him.
The SqueakMap repository is open to public so Joseph as well
as others are able to move the the project forward. But make
sure to contact Joseph directly since he may not read any of
the squeak mailing lists.
This would also make sure that not only the Squeak side of
Toothpick evolve but Joseph is also able to integrate
fixes and enhancements into the general framework.
