Squeak Oversight Board minutes – 01/17/12

Attending: Chris Muller, Colin Putney, Levente Uzonyi, Chris Cunnington

  • it was agreed that was nice to see Eliot exploring the SqueakCore image, as we hope this is a direction the community will take up
  • a long conversation was had about how to distribute the next version of OmniBrowser, as existing tools don’t seem quite right
  • a long Installer script could be written, but that meant every version would have its own, and managing them would be a nuisance
  • Metacello was seen as good, but that it would be better if the metadata/dependency info could be accessible; so you could ask questions of the metadata
  • the difference between the needs of users and developers was raised
  • the next OmniBrowser will have around 30 packages to co-ordinate and likely more
  • Colin’s working on a DSL and tool to manage the task for his own personal use: a tool that reads a spec and creates an Installer script
  • Levente suggested a tool to read a Metacello configuration to make a spec to feed into Colin’s tool and then produce an Installer script
  • it was mentioned that a build server factors into these problems and could assist the process
