Perfect. I will release a new ConfigurationOfMagma with support for this
new version 1.1r2 with packages taken all from Magma repo in

Please Phillipe, +1 to adding Chris to the developers of WriteBarrier as
Magma is a main user of WriteBarrier. This way the last version will be
on WriteBarrier repo (authoritative) and copied also in Magma repo (in
case WriteBarrier disappear someday).

I vote for deleting it, because every released version is on Magma repo
(I think) so there is less noise and less mistakes having some packages
in one repo and others in other that form a release.

Good, I will base the configuration packages version number on this sar.
It will be named 1.1r2 or will be 1.1r3 (due to the deletion of a test
in the package you mentioned before, maybe isn't big enough to deserve a
new release and it was a "hurry" release maybe can we consider this a
typo and consider the sar the official 1.1r2 release)
Thanks for the answers
