Well, I disagree with the decision.

You had at least two available starting points, 3.10.2 and 3.10.2-build, -buiild was clearly better and available since June 28, 2009 (before trunk).
The fixes and additions to 3.10.2 in -build were clearly documented in the info file on the ftp site, Squeak3.10.2-build/090628-1523/090628-1523_Squeak3.10.2-build.info.
And you all are choosing the one that was inferior as a starting point.

It's like running a race and intentionally trying for second place.

But so be it. The community will have to live with the choice.
