What comes with 3.10 is working.
I don't read people saying they could't load packages.
I think Monticello 2 could be loaded on top, Damien and Colin could say
When in the first time we start with 3.10 , I suggest to Ralph he do some
"Monticello summit" with Avi, Colin ,Bert and some more with huge experience
in Monticello business.
