I tried to load seaside into GST. This was meant more as a stress test than a porting attempt. Indeed I had a few problems (mostly my bugs, such as having more than 64 items in Undeclared and causing it to grow). It also reproduced the 2.95b x86-64 failures on my machine too, so I fixed them (they were introduced by the copy-on-write patches from last December).

I don't wand to FUD, but... well, I once was curious if gst would be capable of loading seaside. That was when I started to make the continuation tests work, which were working fine, even without me having a good idea how I managed to. I was quite confident that the whole system would work, if somebody contributes a couple of days to it. But then...

Well, it involves (from my point of view, not really knowing what I did that time) that there's a not a lot of code to be added, but many different "small get-theres", which, for my experiments, I copied from squeak. It worked, but I wasn't sure if there were license issues.

So, to put the long story short: to make seaside work on gst, one have to implement the glue code by ones own, not "copying" the stuff from squeak, right? Or am I completely wrong?

Once again, I don't want to interfere - just want to know if that would be a manageable project for my vacation or not ;)

Kind regards,
