And why do not take my idea of have a Monticello thing what mimics .sar ?
I have working demos on Squeak 5.0, if time lets record a short video and upload to YouTube this week end.

It?s been more than a few years since I last had to think about SARs (actually from my emails it looks like 2004 was the last time!) so a bit of trawling through the swiki was in order. I?ve updated a couple of pages relating to SARs to (hopefully) make them a touch more useful these days, and just tried loading the very old SARBuilder package from SqueakMap. Don?t forget that you have to hit the menu in the top-left list of the Squeakmap tool in order to turn off the filtering that makes it invisible since it isn?t thoroughly up to date.

However, it clearly needs some updates to make it a better citizen; for example it completely overwrites the ChangeSorter>>changeSetMenu:shifted: method.
