Great. The obs people will create a pharo organization for us.

What is the state of the unit tests and which tests fail? Are these genuine regressions compared to the Pharo5 VM?

I am struggling with the squeak-vm build system right now. It is doing so many things in a non-standard way and it is getting more and not less. I am currently struggling with the install part.

To illustrate the challenge:

* Standard systems would use DESTDIR as variable to not directly install to /usr/bin/foo but $(DESTDIR)/usr/bin/foo. Squeakvm has only "prefix"

* There is a script to rename "squeak" to "pharo" after things were installed

* It creates a "squeak" shell script that tries to find the real squeak, this will make dual (64bit, 32bit) installation more hard as well...

let's see how far I get today
