I was a disbeliever of automatic procedures and wish a return to 3.8 good
practice until some better tools comes.
I trust Colin and Goran, but MC2 and DS seems not ready yet, so all we have
is old good (or evil) Change Sets.
As user, I wish hit the button on Squeak flap and see updates load nicely,
my image don't blow and I end in a number greater as 7159, what was the last
Ralph and me cook using a very ugly MC and Change Sets combo, but works
except on two situations.
Ralph set up a high bar for quality , any change should be test for no new

* Prove the changes work as intended.
o This often means:
1. Loading bug tests before fixes.
2. Run the bug test. (It should fail)
3. Install the fix.
4. Run the bug test. (Now it should pass.)
1. Then prove all standard quick tests work.
2. Then prove all standard long tests work.
3. And as icing on the cake prove all tests work together
All this seems a must, we throw away this ?
So , before we run in a civil war with no winners, all should calm down.
Sorry I can't go to Brest and drink a beer with some Squeakers.
