I did not say that. I thought you thought I was asking for help with the coding. 

Yeap that exactly what I asked from you, support on NB and NBOGL , mainly documentation and potential bug fixes. Thats all.

I realise that , however I have a very specific vision of what I want to achieve. I am doing this only on the grounds of enjoyment and not end result. But If I can found people with their own vision and with a similar path to mine, I have no issue to join forces with them. Actually several people seem to want a port Morphic to OGL and I am already with communication with them via #squeak at freenode.net (currently there are 3 of us) so yes I welcome it as an option to have a high level of cooperation on the subject.  I hope this thread to be a motivation for all of us OGL to join code. On the other hand thats not up to me only ;)

ah lovely , of course I am aware of your wiki but I was not aware of the PBE chapter and the on-board reference.

Well maybe my project and other projects that will use NBOGL will change your mind one day ;) 

I will back with further questions
