Hi guys

1.2 should go out. Marcus and me should spend their time on 1.3, OPAL and the rest.

Now for PharoDev we want to remove packages that are not about tools.
If you want XML, openDBX... help us using Metacello to build distributions = something that will work in 1.2 when 
we will be in Pharo 10. Right now this is not normal that a problem in XML in 1.2 impacts the builds in 1.1.

Proposing bloated images DOES NOT HELP US. Why? Because the goal is to have an INFRASTRUCTURE to take 
a small image with a metacello description repository and load whatever we want. In the future we want to use 
metacello to manage core and not to have a distinction between core and dev. We should be able to load all the time
RBEngine and use it all the time to fix the system. 

Right now we are LOSING TIME on fixing 1.2 configs while we should invest in the infrastructure that will enable 
to be agile and load whatever configuration we/you will develop.

So can we be focus on the infrastructure? The concept and tools that we will make us be really powerful in the 

So if the community does not hear our call, we the board will take actions. We do not want to do that but if this
is necessary we will do it because we want 1.2 to get out.
