Sounds reasonable. One of the things that might be helpful is to set up 
a wiki with "porting notes and status" for each package (like noting 
that we should discuss folding Connectors into Etoys).

We should then spend some time to go over the differences and just take 
notes about the portions that require work. I'd like to get an idea 
first about the scope of what needs to be done and then about how to 
address the issues.

Fine by me. You've got all the commit rights you need :-)
