[Clo-devel] On supporting arch

I've been talking to Erik Enge on #lisp and suggesting to go into full
support mode for arch. (-:
What is left to do: not much, really. development of arch-based projects
on common-lisp.net is possible already, as both non-anonymous ftp and
anonftp are supported.
What would be good to have: a few things.
* sftp support for people who are reluctant to transmit passwords in
plain text over the net. this will probably also benefit users who
don't use arch.
* no delay between uploading something and it appearing in the anonftp
download area. Would it be possible to upload to the download area
directly? Erik said it was a permission problem. That should be
easily fixed, I guess (-:
Erik also asked about a script to send notifications to project mailing
lists when a change get committed to the arch archive. This is a little
harder to implement, but should be doable via the "dnotify" agent. I'll
look into that when I have the time.
Anyway, thanks for putting up common-lisp.net!
