This has not much to do with knowing Monticello - it's just a piece of Smalltalk code that can be debugged like any other piece of Smalltalk code. Don't be scared. For a Smalltalker that's certainly easier than debugging git ;)

+1000.  Same goes for mercurial, subversion, sccs and the whole lot of them. Monticello works, and works extremely well.  See Andreas Raab's endorsement when moving the Qwaq/Teleplace code base from its 3.8 base to 4.2.  I simply don't understand the antipathy to Monticello.  I wish I had the time to rant on, but IMO the community will suffer if it strays from Monticello.  If for example haso and Squeak fork Monticello or one abandons Monticello that'll be the end of effective cross-fertilization.  One thing, I'll give up definition-level diffs over my dead body.  Have you used a standard diff tool for looking at Smalltalk code?  Any code?  Why the unix community has soldiered on for so long using file diffs just shows you what an unstructured language C is.
