It all depends on what you want to do. :) Squeak is a large community
with tons of projects going on in parallell.
This list (setools) was created specifically to support various efforts
in "tools for software engineering". This can be new kinds of browsers -
the OmniBrowser base is getting more and more traction, or any other
kind of tool of course. :)
One project that happens to be housed on this list (we are thinking of
possibly creating our own) is Gjallar - an advanced open source web
based issue tracker. We have www.gjallar.se with more info about it.
If issue tracking sounds interesting, then join us on IRC on channel
#gjallar - or just reply to this post. :) We gladly want more developers
getting into the Gjallar code base.
Gjallar is still in development but getting closer and closer to a very
interesting "state". We are using it for Gjallar itself already - but
then we are not pushing its capabilities. Gjallar is not only for "bug
tracking" - it is built for more diverse and advanced needs and is quite
capable/promising in its design and technology.
