The SVN repository history is on line, and begins October 2001:
Prior to that the support code was hosted on sourceforge.com. I don't
know if any copy of that repository still exists, and I don't know when
it first became publicly available. Some of that history may be lost.
The Smalltalk sources were first put on squeaksource.org in 2004 (MMMaker-tpr.2).
As far as I know, the main gap in this historical record would probably be
the sourceforge history.
