https://github.com/npapagna/cuis-system-updaterVery cool Mariano!

I did some work on the GitHub side of things some time ago.
The thread on this list was "Introducing System Updater for Cuis
Smalltalk", and here is the repo:

I had a couple of issues, I recall the following being the most important:

   - Automatically updating the cuis image was hard because I had to deal
   with something related to morphs (I can look for the email that I sent to
   the list describing the problem later)
   - The public GitHub API is rate limited, and I quickly reached out that
   limit while trying to run my updater.

I was just thinking about this last weekend, and I wanted to try using the
GitHub API requiring an API Key (yes, if you want to use the tool you'd
have to get one), but this allows access to better and less restricted API

I'm happy to dig deeper into that if it helps.
