Stewards for Packages
Last updated at 2:19 pm UTC on 16 January 2006
Page started by bkv on 3/6/2003

A Steward is a person or group that has been trusted by the community with the responsibility of actively maintaining one of the Factoring Squeak 3.4+ into Packages of Squeak. The list below is the list of people who have gone through the process of Steward successfully. (This means that you can't just sign up below to become one - read more on the Steward page.)

The Task Force November Revolution will produce a set of package definitions that will help identify those packages in the distributed image that need stewardship.

Summary:

I've divided the stuff in the 3.4 image into frameworks and apps. This is pretty coarse-grained right now – feel free to improve it! [bkv]

Coarse-grained is great! Nice work, Brent! Now...let's have some volunteers to care for these areas of Squeak? Browse on all examples
