Please do. I think that we should do the squeakfoundation and do not wait
I have no problem to see a structure running in Germany if you are the
only active people. I would like to see a place where I can buy Squeak Cd
with a different kind of prices, and one Supporting Squeak Price.
Our Universities are rich to buy silly software so if the German
ship a distribution (simple low profile) we could buy it and ask others to
do the same.
I would not have any problem to buy twice a year a cd that would contain a
dump of the wiki, the VM and all the books, columns material.
ESUg is currently stabilizing a Smalltalk Cds and you could use the
material to create a Squeak Distribution. Then with some sexy names like
Emmental or another Cheese brand we could have in no time a nice site.
