When you do that, you use the main part of my work, i.e., maintaining
the Universe :-).

Because Laurent Laffont does this for me :-) (thank you Laurent).

I agree, it should be put on the Squeak release team and I guess they
agree. I can't fix Squeak. The dev images are not a fork, it's only
packages put into a base image.

I attached the script to this email. This script uses Universe to load
the different things including the package ImageForDevelopers comming
from SqueakSource. This package configure the image (documentation,
omnibrowser by default, clean tools flap, icon...). If you need more
info please tell me.
