I do have a business case for bitmaps among other things so I need to really start jumping in and helping to fill some of these gaps.
Now that I'm in the beta repo you created can you give me some instruction as to how to contribute more directly? I don't see that you or the other Bob have put any code in there yet.

Bob Nemec wants to use it for his Report4PDF, so that we can have a look before it becomes public.
The normal development of the PDF4Smalltalk library should happen in Cincom's public store (it is in the open now). I work directly with the pubic store and publish any changes there. If you want to add some new features (I'd love you to do bitmaps ), I would suggest you define a package in the “PDF Development” main bundle outside and after of the “PDF” runtime bundle and start your code there. If you are shy, you could use the beta store of course, but then only Bob Nemic and I can see it.

I currently am using the 'guest' login for that. I suppose I need a named account to post to it, no?

… or you start in the beta repo until you get an account from Cincom.
If you want to look at Bitmaps, a good starting point would be the method DeviceGray»asPDFImage:transfer:.
