Speech is no longer part of the Trunk (I don't know why), I have no idea what is the best way to keep it in a maintainable state. Shall we readd it to the Trunk? Shall I make a separate GitHub repository for it? Open to your ideas. :-)

Hi Christoph,

Please set up an account for yourself on squeaksource.com, exactly
like your ct account on source.squeak.org. There is already a
Speech project there (http://www.squeaksource.com/Speech) that
begins with the Speech-md.9.mcz that you found. I'll add you to
that project so that you can contribute directly. You can copy
your Speech-ct.11 directly there, and merge as needed. The most
recent update in that repository is from 2012, so I'm sure that
it is overdue for some updates :-)

Presumably someone should also update the SqueakMap entry for
Speech, which apparently points to an old copy that was extracted
from Squeak 3.4.

Sorry I did not mention this earlier, but I honestly had forgotten
that the squeaksource repository was there, even though I am the
person who set it up long ago.
