It would be great indeed if someone who actually knows Squeak would  
help in the VM packaging efforts for the various Linux distributions.  
The packages  are mostly outdated, not built correctly, missing  
plugins etc. - though I'm still grateful for the volunteer packagers'  
work done so far. They're Squeak's ambassadors to the larger open- 
source community and need our support.

I'm here to help and give advice (both as Linux VM hacker and the  
Board's new VM team advisor) but I can't actually spend the time  
maintaining a distro package myself (I did so for the OLPC distro but  
it is switching to plain Fedora now). If you want to help please  
contact me.
