Hi again,

Create a new kind of Package that is actually just the git repository. With
some tooling help one could:

        - Have gst-sunit work on the unpackaged package.
        - Make it more easy to load the CWD into an image without any of
          the above issues.
based on the chat with today. I have attached a prototype for this new
kind of package format. It can be used like this:

                addDirPackage: 'packages/stinst/parser/package.xml;
                fileInPackage: 'Parser.dir'.

For every dir package the package will be made available as NAME and
NAME.dir. This is done to easily take presedence over the normal package.

What do you think? Somehow it would be cleaner if the new package and
the star package would have a common base class instead of subclassing
the star one. On the other hand the package.xml is a 'star' thing.


PS: Any ideas of an in-situ output? My goal is really to work on a package
and use PackageLoader dirPackageOut: 'Parser'. And everything is written
back to where it came from. Does anyone share this idea with me?

I really like the idea but I would made some changes:

1) It doesn't make sens to me to add a package to a package repository list thus PackageLoader fileInPackage: 'packages/..../package.xml' seems enough
2) Please don't subclass the star package really it hurts me.
