These are a relatively recent feature introduced in ASDF 3,
as part of my attempt to get rid of component-property:
plenty of systems each had their own, incompatible way
of specifying these elements (plus a few sui generis elements
that either had no place in the system object, or could be added
using subclasses of system or a system-keyed hash-table).

Before starting yet another website about Lisp software, you might want to
try collaborating with the existing cl-user.net and/or cliki maintainers.
Or not.
