Thank you for your prompt response!
The current implementation works just fine. It looks like that we
just need to separate the *default base directory*, from another
*application-specific base directory*. I'd *simply* do the followings:
- Add MAExternalFileModel to the Smalltalk start-up list to ensure
that the default value gets automatically updated.
- Add an alternative class instance variable, for those applications
that would need to reference a specific directory (without automated update).
Does this make sense?
Otherwise, the issue appeared since I'm used to copy my image from a
*dev* directory to a *prod* directory, before executing my
distribution generation script (sort of "PRDistribution new
register"). I addressed the issue by simply adding to that script
