I admit it's under-documented at this point, but
lisp-interface-library provides an example.

It's very similar to quick-build (and maybe compatible, modulo a
separate configuration), and also very similar to faslpath (except
using / rather than . as a separator in package names): you configure
the top of your hierarchy with an asd file with a defsystem form that
specifies :class package-system, then each file under that hierarchy
is a subsystem with a trivial mapping of system name, pathname, and
package name. The cl:defpackage or uiop:define-package form at the
start of each file specifies the dependencies via the same trivial

PS: it looks like development of asdf has stabilized. Maybe we should
get into testing mode before to release ASDF 3.1.1?
