I've created an issue to track the project and started the port of
magritte-metamodel/magritte on my fork of the project. If you follow
along in Issue #105, I'll record progress in commits and comments on
the issue ...

Ciao Dale, thanks.
I have no great experience in managing this type of updates.
I had some considerations.
I've looked at this a bit closer and I notice that you are
referencing the magritte-metamodel/magritte and that project has
not been ported to GLASS yet ... A quick way to tell if a
particular project has been ported to GLASS is to look at the
.travis.yml file and check to see if there are any GemStone
versions being tested.
The GsDevKit/Magrite3 was ported to GLASS and the test ran
cleanly as of 3 years ago. The project hasn't been updated to
SmalltalkCI and the last version tested was GemStone 3.3.1. I
just triggered a new build to see where the project stands today
- the travis run passed for GemStone 3.2.15 and 3.3.1 ...
Moving forward, I would think the best bet would be to port the
magritte-metamodel/magritte project to GLASS and GemStone 3.2.17,
3.3.9, and 3.3.9 ... I assume that Magritte has changed from the
point where I forked Magritte 3.3.0 back in December of 2015 ...
From the release history of GsDevKit/Magritte3, it looks like I
ported 3.2.0, 3.3.0, 3.3.1, 3.3.2, and 3.4.2. the master branch is
3.4.2. I also got a start on 3.5.0, but didn't finish the port to
the point where I merged to master ...
I would think that updating GsDevKit/Magritte3 3.4.2 to support
smalltalkCI and GemStone 3.4.3, would be pretty straightforward ...
I have no idea about it...... how should I proceed?
The release history of magritte-metamodel/magritte indicates
that 3.5.4 was released in January of this year ... I've launched
another GsDevKit/Magritte3 travis run for branch version_350 to
see what the state of the GLASS Magritte3.5.0 port is ...
It lools like the Magritte 3.5.0 test passes so it is likely
that we'll be able to merge the GsDevKit/Magritte3 work into the
magritte-metamodel/magritte project ...
I don't have full time to commit to doing this work, but barring
any major surprises between Magritte 3.5.0 and Magritte 3.5.4 and
later, it should only take a week or so of elapsed time for me to
do the port ... if there are significant changes then all bets are
But what do you mean? That you can port ( the GsDevKit/Magritte3
work into the magritte-metamodel/magritte project ) within a week?
I don't have a lot of time to mess around with porting projects that
no one will use, so there are two different routes that I can take:
What I have developed is based on Seaside and Magritte and for now I
am not able to review and change the reference base.
I would like and would be useful to continue in this direction.
1. Port GsDevKit/Magritte which is known to run on GemStone 3.3.x
and will likely run on GemStone 3.4.3 without a lot of changes.
Downside is that it is 4 years old and may not meet your
requirements. Going this route is likely to take around a week
elapsed time (not full time).
in this case, I don't know if feasible but: Set the development
environment based on Pharo 7.0.3 (it seems stable) and install
Magritte from ConfigurationOfMagritte3to the version compatible with
GsDevKit / Magritte.
If you tell me the relative ConfigurationOfMagritte3 versionof
GsDevKit / Magritte I can try to set the Pharo 7.0.3 environment in
2. Port magritte-metamodel/magritte to
GemStone ... there are
GemStone packages present, in the repository, but GemStone is not in
the travis lineup, so the GemStone code has not been tested for a
long time (maybe more than 4 years). Going this route will likely
take a week (elapsed --- not full time) just to figure out how big of
a job the port will be ...
You are currently trying to use magritte-metamodel/magritte with
Pharo 7.0.3, so it seems that the right answer is to spend time
porting , magritte-metamodel/magritte to GemStone ... then you'll be
using the same code base on Pharo and GemStone ... if there aren't
significant changes to Magritte in the last 4 years then a couple of
weeks would be a good guess ... and I can handle that ...
This seems to me the best solution.
That can be useful also for the porting of Pier (which if I remember
correctly is based on Magritte) ????
In this case I wonder if I can be useful?
If this makes sense to you, then I will start work on the port
tomorrow after I see your email:)
