One ring to rule them all

Refactoring Browser, Packaging Software like Monticello and other Smalltalk tools mostly work on their own code/meta model. What about a unified model?

Veronica Uquillas is currently working on Ring - a unifying and foundational model
infrastructure for Pharo. The goals of the project are:

- Provide a common API at structural and runtime level
- Allow tools to interact and integrate directly with the host environment (Pharo)
- Support history analysis

You can find the code at squeaksource, there is also a continuos integration job
and the latest updates now try to integrate Ring. There is also a presentation available.
