Hi all

I have been thinking about the next steps. Here are a list of  
propositions for 3.10/4.0 that I would like
to work on and welcome company. Ideally I would like to build a group  
of people that have fun to work on these items.
We could even try to have some regular chats one day a week and FUN.

I think that Squeak 10/4 should not be compatible to free us but at  
the same time it should prepare the
coming of new assets (sophie/tweak).

Here are the main actions I would like to see happening:

	- be able to load Tweak

	- be able to load Sophie infrastructural elements (ressource  
	=> even substitute current Squeak ones with sophie ones (Rome renderer)

	- curve/remove Etoy/projects (without having to reload them)

	- remove nebraska and others/ remove packages early in the process

	- new compile method format if available else klaus fix for source  

	- may be newcompiler if ready

	- aggressive cleans in a lot of areas

	- look at Pavel overrides problems
	=> ideally be able to use Pavel image as a basis for 10/4

	- Use tool builder (looking at the tool plus) and change the current  
	(the ones that deserve migration)

	- more tests

	- may be using MC2 if ready

	- better integration of AST and refactoring support

So if you want to help there on a regular basis or on specific items  
please say it
