There is already a slime repository on alioth: 

it is used to coordinate the debian packaging.

So far darcs has been quite easy to use, with 2 reservations:
- large changes sometimes make it loop. So sbcl for example is not
  imported into a sbcl-upstream darcs and then pulled into the sbcl debian
  package like one should do. Instead both are also CVS repositories and
  we update in place and record that as the 'new version'.

- sometimes I would pull a tagged version and some files are not there.
  I need to investigate this further as I think I misunderstood how to
  pull a certain tagged version of the tree.

Groetjes, Peter
