which is where the SVN tree has been moved to. The squeak.hpl.hp.com

We're expecting HP at some point will wake up and drop that server,  
but perhaps not until the end of the year.  mmm ping....

The mac readme doc in the VMM38b4 should talk about what to do to

in xcode and open the VM project, then set the application in the  
plugin xcode to be the squeak VM debug app, then you can breakpoint  
in your plugin, but see the source code for the entire execution stack.
