Squeak is a Smalltalk system and all the changes are versioned
automatically in the live image and shared via the Monticello repository.
If they use svn it is probably some ancillary systems related to the
project. Between 1st and 5 Jan their repository system has recorded 25
commits to about 10 different packages.
Anyway I am not comparing a dynamic, interpreted system using a live image
with a static compiled language as they are quite different paradigms and
the development styles are quite different.
