Okay, I finally put together a swiki page outlining what I believe to 
be the current harvesting process, as was sorted out here on this list 


Let me know if there are any problems with this.  If not, I'll post the 
page on squeak-dev too.  Of course, we can refine the process as we go.

(I used the term "Harvest Master" for my role as 
update-stream-incorporator.  I think Hannes came up with this... I 
couldn't think of another good term.  Maybe "Incorporator"... eh.)

I think I cleaned up most of the related harvesting pages so that 
they're no longer horribly out of date, and added links between pages 
where appropriate.

Also, related to Stephane's thread about the Kernel group harvesting, 
we need to think about how that will fit in with the process outlined 
above.  I think Stephane and Daniel are on the right track... I will 
try to offer extra suggestions tomorrow, but I'm up way to late here 
and am about to fall asleep... :-)
