    If you want your code in Embeddable Common-Lisp project, please
    send a patch to mailing list with additional tag [PATCH] in

which appears in  common-lisp.net/project/ecl/static/quarterly/ecl-quarterly.org
is no longer valid ? I don't recall this being mentioned on the mailing list.

Unfortunately  gitlab.com  gives at present an SSL error with all my browsers
so I would have to move to a newer version of Linux before I'm able to access
it and it will be a while before I get around to that. I note that I can
access  gitlab.common-lisp.net .I'm mentioning this because  ecl-quarterly.org

   After 15.3.7 release there are a few changes going on. We are now
   hosted at gitlab.com (however it would be nice to move to
   gitlab.common-lisp.net, just /not now/),

Yes , I understand. In any case it turns out that the mailing list mangled
the code. At 2 places when my patch has  ", at forms" , that is a comma followed
by the at sign followed by "forms" , the list shows this as  ", at forms" .
This is probably a bug with the list software. I'm sending this message
BASE64 encoded so we'll see if the  comma-at  sequence suffers the same
