I'm still a Smalltalk/Squeak newbie, but I want to contribute to the 
development of Squeak images (mostly fixing the bugs I find while 
playing with these images).

I'd like to become one of the developers of squeak images. Where can I 
apply? :-)

So far, I've noticed a bunch of small things (mostly regarding the GUI) 
that worked in the 3.8 images but seems to be broken in the current alphas:

- borders on rollover-able morphs are no more centered;

- the button morph gets a bit darker everytime I click on it and release 
the mouse button outside of it;

- #romanString in SmallInteger is no more implemented. So selecting 
roman numerals in the watch object morph raises an error.

As with every other opensource project I believe that everything should 
be kept as a possible choice both for user and developers. So, for 
instance, I believe Morphic should be kept and improved even if there's 
Tweak in development. The same applies to Balloon3D (even if there is 

Also, I would like to see an officially mantained bare bones image from 
which developers could easily build their projects upon for a cleaner 
and lighter deployment of applications built with Squeak.

What do you people think about this?
