There's new Monticello repository with pacakges for the KernelImage

    * http://www.squeaksource.com/KernelImage.html

Here you can find modified versions of standard packages.

You need to have KernelImage with Monticello support. That means that
you should create basic KernelImage, then download latest versions of
packages Compression, Network, PackageInfo and Monticello from the
repository, unzip it end load source.st files of all this packages.

Prepared image:

Use external files for long scripts, current console cannot process
multiline commands.

You may then reload this packages or newer versions from the repository again:

do: [:packageName |
    ((MCHttpRepository location:
'http://www.squeaksource.com/KernelImage' user: '' password: '')
    loadVersionFromFileNamed: packageName) load ]

Then you can load next packages like Comanche and Seaside.

do: [:packageName |
    ((MCHttpRepository location:
'http://www.squeaksource.com/KernelImage' user: '' password: '')
loadVersionFromFileNamed: packageName) load ]

Some other packages like Scriptaculous can be loaded from standard repositories.

((MCHttpRepository location: 'http://www.squeaksource.com/Seaside'
user: '' password: '') loadVersionFromFileNamed:
'Scriptaculous-lr.141.mcz') load

How to save package:

| repository pkg |
repository := (MCHttpRepository location:
  'http://www.squeaksource.com/MyRepository' user: '' password: '').
pkg := MCPackage named: 'MyPackage'.
pkg workingCopy repositoryGroup addRepository: repository.
repository storeVersion: pkg workingCopy newVersion.

All packages except Seaside are clean. That means that the image has
empty Undeclared collection. The maintainers of this packages should
look at this versions and modify their packages to be more adapted for
UI-less and Tools-less images.
