There used to be the following in the #squeakCommon section of #basline12: 
in ConfigurationOfOmniBrowser-GuillermoPolito.70:

 	package: 'OCForOB' with: [
 		spec repository: 'http://www.squeaksource.com/OCompletion';
 		requires: #('OCompletion' 'OmniBrowser' 'OB-Standard')].

But now it's just

 	package: 'OCForOB' with: [ spec requires: #('OCompletion' 'OmniBrowser' 'OB-Standard')];

The repository is specified for Pharo in it's own section, but not for 
Squeak. Btw both Pharo and Squeak should use the latest version of OCForOB 
from the OCompletion repository on squeaksource. But first the 
configuration of OCompletion should be updated and my Metacello knowledge 
is not enough to do that properly (adding stable versions for both Squeak 
4.1 and 4.2).

I doubt that would work. Lukas' version of OB has Pharo specific code 
which is not compatible with Squeak.
