I set up a test project ("VMMaker-Test") and used a Monticello browser in
Squeak to copy a large set of VMMaker oscog files to ss3. All uploads were
fast and problem free, with no errors of any kind. These are files that are
slow and error prone when uploading to SqueakSource. Based on this limited
testing, the ss3 performance is very good, reliability is not a problem,
and the overall experience is good.

Over the course of the alpha I will continue to do more load testing and iron out the details of the infrastructure.

There are a handful of known issues[2] that Tobias and I will be addressing over the alpha period and at least one issue[6] that we need help addressing.
