Yet another project to deal with multiple dialects:

Porting Monticello to Smalltalk/X
Over the years, lot of nice stuff has been developed for 
Squeak/Pharo. Porting the code to other dialects lacking
monticello (such as Smalltalk/X) support is difficult and 
error-prone. Updating already ported code to a new version 
or merging changes back to the mainline is even worse.
Monticello port will ease porting of other successful projects.
AidaWeb, Seaside, SqueakDBX, Glamour, Mondrian or DeltaStreams
are just few of them. GemStone pioneered this approach and 
its success show us that this is a reasonable way to go. 
The goal to this project is to port and integrate Monticello to
the Smalltalk/X environment so the programmer will be able to
load a code from a monticello repository and commit it back right
from the Smalltalk/X IDE.

Cheers, Jan
