Subject: RFS: cl-asdf/3.3.0 - Another System Definition Facility

Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: normal

Dear mentors,

I have packaged the new upstream release 3.3.0 of the Common Lisp ASDF

 Package name    : cl-asdf
 Version         : 2:3.3.0-1
 Upstream Author : Robert P. Goldman <rpgoldman at sift.info>
 URL             : https://common-lisp.net/project/asdf/
 License         : Expat
 Section         : lisp

The cl-asdf source package builds this binary package:

cl-asdf    - Another System Definition Facility

The package appears to be lintian clean apart from a orig-tarball-missing-upstream-signature
warning which I cannot fix due to building the package from git with gbp.

To access further information about this package, please visit the following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

  dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/c/cl-asdf/cl-asdf_3.3.0-1.dsc

Changes since the last upload:

cl-asdf (2:3.3.0-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  Package changes:

  * Update Standards-Version to 4.1.1

  New upstream milestone:

  * Build-plan: Extensively revised the build plan process so that
    :DEFSYSTEM-DEPENDS-ON would work correctly, even when depended on systems
    change (which didn't work before). See our ELS demonstration about it:
    "Delivering Common Lisp Applications with ASDF 3.3"
    < https://github.com/fare/asdf2017 >
  * Internals: to support the above, many ASDF internals have changed.
    ASDF now has the notion of multiple build phases to a common build session
    (which generalizes the previous build cache). ASDF considers loading a .asd
    file as an operation DEFINE-OP, and tracks as dependencies files mentioned
    during in :LOAD-FILE-FORM statements, etc. Some code has moved to new
    files or among old files, and between packages. Actions are now
    uniformly represented as a CONS of an OPERATION and a COMPONENT, where
    in some cases previously only the class of the operation was
    preserved. Forcing is constrained to be uniform across all phases of a
    top level ASDF operation invocation. Fixed the protocol for
    resetting systems being (re)defined, allowing subclasses to define
    default slot values. Remove *LOAD-SYSTEM-OPERATION*, as the current
    maintainer of ECL, for which it was originally designed, decided
    that it could never be made to work properly, after all.
  * ASDF&UIOP: Tweak dependencies between ASDF and UIOP. To avoid DEFINE-OP
    circularity, asdf.asd with no longer causes uiop.asd to be loaded.
    A standalone UIOP won't be loaded at all unless it's strictly more recent
    than ASDF.
  * Tests: tests for new capabilities and bugs. Test backtraces can be disabled.
  * Documentation: a number of improvements and clarifications.
  * Feature: a new feature :asdf3.3
  * ECL: restored the deprecated function MAKE-BUILD, removed in 3.2.0,
    in a way that works on top of supported APIs (we still recommend you migrate
    to these supported APIs). Also stop using the deprecated COMPUTE-INIT-NAME.
  * Deprecation: starting to emit STYLE-WARNINGs for deprecated
    functions.  Will gradually escalate to true WARNINGs and then ERRORs.

Thank you
