Ralph and Edgar,

I appreciate your initiative and would like to know more about what you  
consider to be a core package and, what is the resulting image when you  
subtract all the core packages. Do I have to understand this being based  
on a kernel image and, what about Pavel's kernel image?

This has to be applauded for it will create records for Squeak's history.

What about non-bugs, like for example performance issues. Or do you count  
them to the bug category.

I'm just curious and try to find out what support you may need.
