I will poke around this  stuff this weekend.  I am on a huge XTreams parseing project that eats most of my coding time, so  I apreciate others doing the thinking whilevI contribute grunt work

Hi Timothy,

Yes, if we want to work with Grease (the Seaside compatibility layer), we will need to make sure that FileTree is able to load the Grease repo for us to work with it.  (Perhaps I can write something up that may help illustrate.)

I've got a lead on it now, and will hopefully find some time in the next few days to dig deeper.  If not, it may have to wait until next week.

Seaside compat is one of my "dabble in side projects" during downtime, so if this Filetree thing is a pre-req, then I will try.

Be aware, my time is very limited for the side projects, but I will help as I can.

It was working for me as of this weekend also.

If Timothy feels inspired, I could definitely use the help figuring out
how to update the ConfigurationOfFileTree to use the 2016 commits from
@krono as described in my recent post to the list.

Without this 2016 fix, the Grease repo doesn't load in Squeak's
Monticello Browser, so efforts to work on the Seaside compatibility with
Squeak (a.k.a., Grease) likely won't be fruitful.

I view this operation as rather complex, so could definitely use advice.
I don't know if it's a question of asking Dale to cherry-pick these
commits into the 'master' branch, or update the spec for Squeak, or
both, or neither. It's also possible (*but unlikely*) that all of this
has been done in /one/ repo, but that the 'Installer
ensureRecentMetacello' is using some /other/ repo somewhere which
contains an older spec or baseline missing these 2016 updates.

Another Tim
