guidelines to SqueakCentralProjects (outdated). Thanks.

Goal
Double-Clickable Applications (DCA),
Self-installing Squeak Release (SSR),
Browser Plugin VM (BPV)
We have bundles these three projects together because the skill set required is pretty similar, and because the second will probably be an example of the first. Each of these has a significant platform-specific component to it.

DCA Estimated completion date: October 1, 1999

SSR Estimated completion date: October 1, 1999

BPV Estimated completion date: October 1, 1999
