Well the *real* issue here is that VM level fixes just aren't properly  
tracked and place in the VM or NOT placed in the VM. The process I'm  
afraid just relies on too many
folks remembering to check the bugs, acting on email flows to the vm- 
dev list or squeak list.

What I would propose is say a monthly or even quarterly meeting/ 
mailing? to co-ordinate the process to a better degree to ensure yes  
or no this fix is going into the VM.
