Hi, me again :)
I was just trying to run your project, but I found a couple of problems... I
will give you my newbie feedback just in case it is useful for you. If not,
please discard.

1)  Here:
says I need  to evaluate SQueakLite new

but SQueakLite class doesn't exist (I installed following the Gofer script
of the same page). So I don't know how to open the application :(

ok, seems
SQueakLWindow new openInWorld   does the trick :)

2) It is difficult to run the test because they hardcode the connections
settings. SQueakLPostgresTest >> #setUp
and the same in SQueakLOracleTest or SQueakLMySqlTest

I suggest you several ways:
- In the same script create users in the databse and use them. Check:
- After installing everything, open a workspace explaing which methods have
to be changed to set our own database connections (we did this for GlorpDBX)
- Document this also in the website
- Be able to choose one of the saved ones
- You can use a TestResource (I did this for SqueakDBX tests).

3) It would be VERY useful to put some screenshots in the website.

Apart from those comments, the project seems really nice and interesting.

As a SqueakDBX/GlorpDBX developer, I am interesting on the status of this
project, if you plan to continue with it, or if it is finished.
It is good the licence is MIT.

What do you think about integrating this project under the official
SqueakDBX/GlorPDBX repository?
and we can even create a group and add it in ConfigurationOfSqueakDBX

We can also link your project from http://www.squeakdbx.org/
