The idea is to make it even easier than now (but so far nothing is defined).
Something like (but this is JUST A DRAFT IN MY MIND):

	#project : ‘MyCoolProject’,
	#description : ‘Blablabla’,
	#tags: [ ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’ ],
	#versions : [
		#current  : ‘1.2.3’,
		#pharo7:  ‘1.2.0’,
	url: ‘github://estebanlm/MyCoolProject'

So you edit the versions to add new ones available (or user can ask for a branch like “master" directly, if they want).
… and of course, something similar for projects who still live at sthub or others. 
The only problem with this approach is that you need to fork the catalog to add your version, something I’m still not convinced is the best solution (but no other way if using github).

Finally, the tool in image would be the same.
