Slightly off topic, but just to check:

If there are any OLPC changes that belong in the base VMMaker package,
I would like to harvest them in VMMaker on SqueakSource. My understanding
is that the OLPC plugins are being maintained elsewhere, which is a good
thing, but if there are any supporting change sets that should be
collected please let me know.
