[Pharo-dev] Selecting a package in the Monticello browser

So we were discussing this here in the sprint. People say this is a
feature. To be this is a bug.

The change is in

repositoryGroup
^ workingCopy
ifNil: [MCRepositoryGroup default]
ifNotNil: [workingCopy repositoryGroup]

which right now it is as

repositoryGroup
^ MCRepositoryGroup default

So we will probably put a setting for the moment because we cannot agree.

Cheers,
