Right, I missed this one (not even a link btw, only a raw address)

Listen, either you accept my feedback, or you don't. Both ways are fine. 
What is not fine is trying to have me feel like I'm the idiot that 
should be happy but isn't for some obscure reasons.

In Squeaksource, I can't find my way, that's all there is to it. I can't 
find which packages do what, it looks to me like a robotic interface 
made for and by robots. I'm glad that humans at times put some info 
inside this thing, but see, I didn't even notice it (and yes I went to 
the wiki tab the first time also).

So, weither or not you get it, weither or not you think I'm too dumb to 
use Squeaksource, here is my feedback about it: I dislike it because 
it's not welcoming to human beings. That's from my experience, and since 
I'm a 10-year Squeak (heavy) user, I guess I can be useful to all that I 
express this; negative feedback can be useful, too.
