OK, so XCVB now has a simple tarball with no dependencies, no .git checkout, but a version.text to track where it's from.
It's actually a symlink to the latest version, currently
and it expands stuff under a directory xcvb/

This version successfully passed its regression tests, when compiled with the latest versions of software from xcvb-branched repositories. I haven't tried it yet with only-upstream libraries, but should include it in my test regime some day.

As for the dependencies that require updating, they include
fare-utils, alexandria, single-threaded-ccl, asdf-encodings, cl-launch, inferior-shell, asdf.

While we're at it, you might consider adding asdf-contrib to quicklisp. It's just an empty system that depends on a collection of other existing asdf extensions.
git clone ssh://
git clone git://

I get this:

Component "asdf-encodings" not found

quicklisp commented Jun 3, 2012

Found it.


quicklisp commented Jun 3, 2012

It would be somewhat nicer if it expanded into a directory that reflected its version.

Can do.
Does the 0.583 release tarball suit you?

Looks good to me.

I've split the pure data structures off of fare-utils into their own library:

This in turn requires an updated XCVB 0.585 and a correspondingly updated inferior-shell.

I've updated meta and scribble to use named-readtables.
Corresponding changes in fare-utils and exscribe.

I think this should be all updated in the latest release.
