Not meaning to be a PITA just really care about this...
I talked with a couple of people studying with me who also use Squeak and some of them seemed to be unsure how contributing works. They are on the ML and know that there are such things as the trunk and the inbox, but they feel it would take some time for them to start contributing code from their 4.1 image and so they haven't come around to doing that yet. I want to show them that committing is easy and they can do it without having to spend time on finding out how.
I know, a committed developer who is willing to spend time on contributions is a good thing, but I feel that the Squeak community is missing out on opportunities if people are "put off" by a vague feeling that starting to commit code isn't easy.
That's why I proposed the solution of a right-click "wizard" to help people quickly get their changes into the inbox. It's just an idea, but I would like to hear what you think.
