Thank you. I have joined that list and will continue the conversation there.

Hi Timothy, 
The vm-dev list is here: 
It is not a beginner's list, and your discussion would be welcome there. Either 
way, you are not creating "noise" and it is great to see you getting involved.

It is a good idea to use a VM from mirandaband.org, because different VMs may have 
different runtime behaviour, and using a runtime environment that matches Eliot's 
will prevent confusion. 
Strictly speaking, you can build a Cog VM using pretty much any VM that works 
with your Squeak4.4 image. So no it is not necessary to use a specific pre-built 
image, but it is a very good idea to do so, especially during the time when you 
are first learning how to do VM building. 
I think Eliot will give you a similar answer, so hopefully he won't mind me stepping 
in to answer some of your questions.
