For VW it seems that Public Store would be good enough, even that all VW 
users usually use its own Stores and replicate from time to time to 
public one. I also have my own one. Problem is that I can't simply open 
publicly my own Store because I have commercial code there too and 
access rights are not simple to separate public from private Store 
access. So, on VW I'll try to publish/replicate more often.

Store also have more or less good separation of stable/dev versions with 
so called blessings. Forking and merging tools are also good, so that 
developing in separate branches and then merging together is relatively 

For Squeak Nicolas volunteered to open his Monticello repository at 
http://mc.bioskop.fr. Thanks Nicolas for that! I don't grasp MC enough 
to see how it can be used for group development as Store yet. But 
because Gemstoners are using now MC too, I need to look at it again.

I propose to use his one for development versions while publish to 
public SqueakSource only beta and released versions.

And another Smalltalk is joining Aida club: Gemstone: 
http://seaside.gemstone.com/ss. More about their GLASS later.

Good idea indeed. I'll try to open those pages then others are welcome 
to provide content too. Coding conventions, hmmm...
