No, I just tell them what I think is necessary to move forward.
Other may be more educated here, it is just sharing MHO so others
can to form an own opinion.

Meanwhile the Pharo community has grown with new members and many people 
dont care about old discussions. 

Let's use our energy to move forward and (if possible) share as much
knowledge and code as long as parts of our communities overlap.

I therefore would really like to see a common exchange mechanism used 
on both sides. 

I'm sure I'm not able to convince one or the other to use package 
systems like Metacello but at least I hope to make them think about 
the need of a more modular system.
