You should ask Robert -- he's the one who's to decide, these days.

Now that the minimakefile branch is *tested* to work with quicklisp
correctly, I see *less* need for that. But if that's the tipping point
for Robert to merge the branch in master, then it's important.

Indeed. I also don't know exactly how to sync that repo to the asdf
repo: have asdf.git be one of the subtrees? Is there like with
subversion the notion of pinned vs non-pinned externals?

No problem. We're all busy.
