I have no clue. It was developed in a 1.2 image. But I guess you have to try out ;)

Hence I will experiment tomorrow a bit on how to split up methods and classes into something more representable. I guess the trickiest part will be to tell git how methods and classes changed when they are renamed, but even that should not be such a problem..

I'd certainly be interested in having a look at this. Since I am not yet sure how to split it up. Since I want to make it compatible with Monticello again I will try to keep enough meta data around to reassemble a sources.st file.

Personally this is no problem, and since I am not obliged to commit it to squeaksource this should be not a problem.
