Title: Debian's Constitution
How can a thousand developers, without being paid, each pursuing their
own interests, funnel their energy into creating a system that is
coherent, that stays malleable, and that provides useful compute power
to tens of thousands of users? How can we assemble Squeak images that
Just Work for our users? How can we provide a library of packages
which load and work the first time, no matter the version of Squeak?
It's a tough question with no simple answer. Our first try won't be
perfect, and instead we should expect to grow the organization over
time. But it's never too soon to start. This article kicks off the
discussion by looking at a famous existing bazaar, the Debian
project. As a timely coincidence, they are just wrapping up their
2005 election for project leader.

Title: Squeak as a Commons
Before we can organize Squeak, we must answer: "What is Squeak?" This
article defines Squeak as a commons where many individual projects
collaborate. The article sketches some of the subgroups using Squeak,
and proposes an organizational structure based around giving
representation to all of these subgroups.

Title: Taming the translation beast!
Now - I have just started figuring out how to translate my Homepage
Builder application to english and of course ended up digging into the
translation stuff. This is a short (well, kinda) report on what I
found, how to use what we have, and what I think we need to fix.

Title: Boosting Squeak: RockSolid images
I have read the "rant" and "unrant" subject with a mix of uneasiness
(embarrassment) and fear. The "Rant" thread began on the 15th of
december 2004, and produced a lot of discussion. I will not summarize
the thread, because a lot of people read it. Instead, I will go
forward and try to find a pragmatic and constructive of helping the
community (and yes, I am also very bold and handosome :) <<
(end of posting. Thank you for your patience)
