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

Isn’t tonel an open format? Would this not encourage other dialects to adopt it as well? The sooner the better?

We know that filetree wasn’t really a great idea as a format (as Windows issues show).

I’d say in this case move to it and let’s move forward. Hopefully all together.
