FWIW, here's the list of properties in LibCL before it died. An
incomplete readme is attached. A few fields were specific to LIBCL (most
belong in ASDF properties); I was bootstrapping this on the side out of
necessity. Hasn't a similar effort been started in Quicklisp?
Here's an example of what I wrote for Hunchentoot.
:short-desc "web server"
:source (:svn "svn://bknr.net/svn/trunk/thirdparty/hunchentoot" 4603))
-------------- next part --------------
*** :maintainer (...)
A list of "name <place>" (where place is an email or irc or forum url or whatever)
Contact info for maintenance issues.
*** :docpath relative-path
*** :tags (...)
Each package may also be marked by a list of tag keywords. Users can specify these when selecting what to install. Here are the initial tags.
:core - a "core" LibCL package
:doc - a documentation tool
:graphics - image loading, saving, and manipulation
:util - simple utility functions (i.e. general-purpose tools)
:ffi - this package relies on ffi (non-lisp) bindings
:reader - tools for modifying the lisp reader
:test - testing frameworks
*** :todo notes
Things that should probably happen before the release.
*** :version "version"
Indicate the version number if this was a tagged release.
Sometimes a simple bugfix appears after a tagged release.
Need a suffix to mark when these minor changes are being used.
*** :date "YYY-MM-DD"
Indicate the date of the release or snapshot.
*** :source (...)
The darcs hash may rely on darcs2. It can be obtained by a variant of the following incantation.
# darcs changes --last 1 --xml-output | grep hash= | sed -e "s/.*hash='\(.*\)'.*/\1/"
Many of Edi's libraries can be found by running
# svn propget -R svn:externals svn://bknr.net/svn/ediware
Known source types
(:cvs url module revision-specifier) ; cvs revs are often specified as "-D 2010-12-34" to get all the commits on 2010-12-33...
(:darcs url hash)
(:git url sha1-hash)
(:svn url revision)
(:wget url filename) ; so #mv filename $canonicalname # or need more?
