[Clo-devel] ftp, public_html, naming and site design.

1) i've got some files in /project/bese/ftp and
   /project/bese/public_html which don't seem to get copied into the
   public www and ftp directories. [monday i ran a lot of ssh
   connections (abusing arch can do this) and eventually couldn't
   connect (i got out of memory errors so i assume i ran into some
   quota), but the problem fixed itself today. i don't know if these
   two things are related.]

2) i'd also like to put a copy of
   /project/bese/bese-devel at common-lisp.net under the www directory,
   is this doable? it could just be a symlink or a every-so-often
   updated copy, considering that it's a pretty big directory.

3) i don't want to offend anyone's tastes but i find the
   common-lisp.net site a little plain. i tried to come up with
   something a bit more colorful:


   i don't like those two designs either, but hey, i gave it my
   best. if you like 'em, use 'em; if you hate 'em, ignore 'em; if
   this is really arrogant and presumptuos of me ... sorry.

4) i've been following the project naming discussion on irc and
   admin at common-lisp.net, if i may: how many different rfc2833
   implementations for common lisp are there? I think that as long as
   the names are discriptive (says he who calls his projects fiveam
   and arnesi) whatever people want should be fine. the existence of a
   project called rfc???? will at least push people to add
   features/improvements to that as opposed to using re-implementing
   it. the idea of having projects somehow map to pages on cliki is
   pretty cool as well.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.
