Hi Geoffroy. This is cool work. I cannot help you in the details of how to
commit that in SVN as I have no idea. Listen to David.

Now...I have a couple of ideas:

1) regardless that, it would be really really cool if you can document all
this in the pharo collaborative book. As you can see there is already a
chapter for VM


and the windows part is empty:

So...we can write the two possibilities to compile in Windows: the standard
one and this new one using CMake.
You can start writing the one of CMake :)
If you want, please just let us know and we create a user for you.

2) In addition, I think it would be a good idea to have a Git for scripts
for the VM. If Squeak VM developers like them, they can also include it in
the svn.

Laurent Laffont already has a git repository with scripts like easy_squeakvm
or something like that. So, you may want to commit your code there too.

3) What about integrating like easy_squeakvm  with this ?  or do a
easy_squeakvm  version of CMake for winwows ?  I would love to do for

./easy_squeakvm.sh --os=Windows  or ./easy_squeakvm.sh --os=Unix

4) Would be  really great to have a Screencast about how to compile windows
with CMake :)

Cheers and continue pushing.
