I already set up an ftp server with additional http access :


login:  squeak
passwd: squeak

Tomorow i will try to make some improvements, if you have any idea what
should be done, let me know.

I will try, but i believed that latest svn are for 64 bit image when not
specified --with src=XXbits. Ian somewhere mentioned that he is now doing
only one /src ... but maybe i am wrong.

The only plugin that i realy need is SocketPlugin.

You can see at the top, please let me know what you think and what the
community will need in future, i want to help somehow on this 64bit slow
evolution. I can also make any http interface from the seaside for this
little repository, and i plan to make searchable interface to http links
which are squeak related.
