I agree with Mark; using a Wiki is the ideal solution to this problem.
And it so happens that Ward already has a lovely Wiki devoted to Squeak at:


If you don't see a section there that satisifies your requirements,
just create one! For example, you could create a "Applications Wanted"
section and add an entry for T-Gen describing what it does and where
to find existing source code and documentation for it. It takes less
time than sending an email.
