  - BitmapCharacterSet [1]
  - XMLWriter [2]

were moved to "pharo-contributions" GitHub I also did a pass on OrderPreservingDictionary:


which is now available as 1.5.0 version (and also as moving tag 1.5.x in case we provide
further hotfixes).

Basically cleanups were applied:
 - add missing comments
 - cleanup packaging
 - fixing typos
 - adding tools group for GT extensions
 - align CI definitions with projects like Seaside
 - CI green again (throwing out non-working Gemstone, volunteers welcomed)
 - fix catalog entry
 - deprecating http://smalltalkhub.com/#!/~PharoExtras/OrderPreservingDictionary and

You can load it using

  Metacello new
	baseline: 'OrderPreservingDictionary';
	repository: 'github://pharo-contributions/OrderPreservingDictionary/src';

or via catalog in Pharo 7 and 8.

As of today XMLWriter still requires the "OrderPreservingDictionary" project as a dependency.
OrderPreservingDictionary could be replaced by OrderedDictionary (same code, in the standard
image) - I will do a pass on that later on. For now I focus on moving the XML stuff to
GitHub first.
