> Yes there is Sake-Packages available via:

> This has all the package definitions as generated from the development
> Universe, and we users can override these definitions in various ways to

> Universes. Optionally you can also load similar definitions generated

> You can define "known to work in specific image" definitions, and "beta
> - try the latest code" definitions.
> Sake-Packages can be told about and use dependencies, it can load from
> anywhere including squeakmap (even if squeakmap is not loaded). It can
> also add dependencies to the existing SqueakMap data.
> So... please do join packages at lists.squeakfoundation.org to monitor
> changes and discuss this collaborative work, and join the we USERs of

I just added a new feature to Sake-Packages
If universes, and "Packages current" defines a package as being loadable
from url: 'http://www.squeaksource.com/Aida/Aida-5.6.mcz'.
"Packages beta" will now attempt to automatically work out where the
beta code is, i.e. the latest.
Packages beta load: 'Aida'.
Will load using the latest code available from the repository for Aida
and its dependencies i.e. Swazoo.
Installer squeaksource project: 'Aida'; install: 'Aida'.
