Comprehensive Open Content documentation is a big lack for Squeak (may 
be for a lot of other programs also). It's more an editors choise, after 
all most of the authors want to be read, but would be nice if, for 
example, as a part of the Summer of Content we could get the liberation 
of some of the excellent books for Squeak like Powerfull Ideas for the 
Classroom of the Bot Inc book. I don't know if the sponsor entities 
behind the project can put money on that and help to convince the editors.
