The Do menu was targeted toward newcomers as a way to introduce some
basics of Squeak. It gives the newcomer list of Squeak expressions
which are generically useful, and have been unchanged since 2002.
I understand that you like Metacello and GitInfrastructure and may
wish to promote their use to others, but as Karl mentioned we already
have existing places in the IDE dedicated to package installation, we
should not introduce another new place, especially one so orthogonal
to its regular purpose. I guess you wouldn't to see "Installer
installMagma" in there, right?
The last entry of the Do menu is "edit this list", this is how it was
intended to be personalized. Is that okay?
PS -- Marcel, can you simply define Metacello and/or GitInfrastructure
as prerequisites to whatever package(s) require them?
