If you want to install GsDevKit_home on 20.04, before I have time to 
create a local vm with 20.04 (I do not have a 20.04 machine available) 
and run tests, then yes you would need to update the installOsPrereqs 
file that includes (at a minimum) adding 20.04 to this line[2] and then 
testing it to make sure that the prereqs (which includes 32 bit library 
support for Pharo3.0) are installed without errors and then creating a 
stone and todeClient to verify that there are no other issues ... 
historically, that is all that is needed, but occasionally a larger 
issue pops up....

If you do the work to update the installOsPrereqs file, then submitting 
a follow on PR, would save others from having to do the edits and testing...

If you are referring to working eliminating the reliance on 32 bit 
pharo, then I would refer you to this issue[3] and this GLASS list 
thread[4] (from October of last year).
