Okay, here you go. Attached some changes that allow one to create change 
sets from the MC updates. Use it like here:

	generateChangeSets: 'http://source.squeak.org/trunk'
	from: 1 to: 145.

This takes the configuration maps and for each package in the map it 
creates a change set from the previous config map. The result is an 
accumulated change set that covers all the MC packages from the previous 
config map (it could be extended to also cover each intermediate version 
but that's left as an exercise for the reader).

One word of advice though. You won't be able to just load these change 
sets and assume they'll work. Monticello loading has much improved and 
is now superior to change set handling since it doesn't load one method 
after another. So you'll have trouble to load stuff like compiler 
changes and very likely the closure updates.

If you don't want to run the process yourself, you can also download all 
the updates from


Let me know if this is in any form useful to you. I find it completely 
useless, but that's just me.
