I think the story is that there are *two* relevant packages in the 39a repository: There is a "BalloonMMFlash" package which is fairly close to the Etoys "Balloon-MMFlash" category. Looks like the hyphen got removed to make this a separate package. This is close enough to be a good potential ancestor. There is also a "Flash" package in the repository which I think was the version that I had produced for Croquet.

Thanks for looking at it. I tried what you suggested and it is doable. However, at this point I don't really want to merge newer versions yet. I think we should package pretty much exactly what we have now, and do actual changes later.

So I pushed another recategorization to the updates stream that moves the Flash support into its own package as you suggested. This matches the newer versions quite well.
