Squeak Oversight Board minutes – 9/20/11

September 21, 2011

Attending: Chris Muller, Bert Freudenberg, Colin Putney, Randal Schwartz, Levente Uzonyi, Jecel Assumpacao Jr., Chris Cunnington

  • The relationship with the Software Freedom Conservancy is working as the process of disbursing funds has been shown to work.
  • It was agreed that the Software Architecture Group at Potsdam does great work and we should find a way to draw more attention to it, perhaps on squeak.org.
  • It was acknowledged that these days in open source Smalltalk there is a great deal of effort going into the VM, which is a great thing. And it was posited that when this burst of VM creativity eases, there will likely be a surge of changes in the image reflecting the new possibilities.
  • The release of a 4.3 image of Squeak is beginning to gather its materials.
  • A discussion on the state of the Squeak community was had.

Squeak Oversight Board minutes – 9/6/11

September 7, 2011

Attending: Chris Muller, Bert Freudenberg, Colin Putney, Randal Schwartz, Jecel Assumpacao Jr., Chris Cunnington

  • Bert and Chris C. returned from ESUG.  Quality of attendance was expressed as one of several highlights.
  • The future of SqueakSource was also discussed. The plan is to employ an updated SqueakSource running on GemStone in the near future at http://ss3.gemstone.com with the mirror in Chile remaining unchanged. The squeaksource code repository is important to the Smalltalk community as a whole, and so it is very nice that GemStone has taken on this responsibility.
  • Bert has a change set that can make a trunk image work on iPad like the Etoys image works on the iPad and he is considering merging those changes into the trunk image. http://etoys.squeak.org/experimental/ipad/
