Dear all,

As a result of recent comments and questions from David Pennell and 
discussion on IRC with Nico we come out with idea to package Aida and 
Scribo in two distributions:

1. one-click Scribo image, end-user/power user oriented, after image 
startup just a simple GUI app with buttons for start/stop Scribo will be 

2. Damien's squeak-web image with Aida and Scribo loaded, developer 
oriented. Scribo will be here loaded as a CMS framework, for building 
web apps combined with CMS functionality.

Scribo one-click will start with Scribo default design while Aida dev 
image with Aida one. I also hope we will manage to develop enough 
configuration that Scribo will actually be a standalone configured, 
without a need for Smalltalk knowledge.

This is for Squeak, for other Smalltalks probably the same.

Do you see such way of packaging both projects a good way to go? 
Remember, all idea is to come a close as possible to two different 

- CMS end/power users
- developers

Best regards
