Package management is not the same as version control ... MC is version
control, whereas we use config maps / SqueakMap / Metacello for package
management. ​Sounds more like when you do a release​ on github, they would
automatically push a release to the npm and gems database.

Jakob (cc'ed) is working on full MC/git/github integration for Squeak, so
he may be interested, but I'd think we should get the basics covered before
getting github to do something specific for us. We don't know what we would
need, yet.
