I agree fully Andreas - but I think that problem is being solved as we speak - there is no real
"secrecy" here - just a couple of guys that want something to work before they release it to too
many people. And do note that there has been voices being raised even from SqC that a release may
be unfortunate as it would be thought of as a fork - see below.

As things stand today there will be no forking - the current scenario is that the StSq release
coming very shortly (a matter of days) will be labeled in such a way that people understand that
it is a testbed for stuff going into Squeak 3.2 and NOT a fork.

And BTW - I have had no problem getting my hands on the prerelease as I got involved in the
project. Would you like to help? I can send you the url for the prerelease if you like. Do you
want to join the project? I can add you to the current email alias too (though we might be moving
to a list hosted at SqF shortly).

My summary of it all is that I personally think a release should have been made earlier - but I
respect the fact that there has been reasons for not releasing yet.

regards, Göran
