[Pharo-users] Status of XML Support's move to GitHub

Hi,

but Tonel allows to use the package also on Windows platform as Tonel is more compact. Otherwise we will run into long filename git
trouble again. This would limit it's use.

A filetree/cypress might make sense for other dialects - but due to the above would it be possibly to have these formats
as a separate branch and keep the master in Tonel? 

I know this makes it harder in maintaining - but I'm not sure the XML packages changes so often.

@Sven: thank for taking action. Can we have a link in the README pointing also to the original STHub Repo?

Maybe we should move the canonical project to the more central https://github.com/pharo-contributions like it was 
done with other repos and add Sven (and others interested) to this team.

Thanks
T.
