Common-lisp.net In Trouble

Mario Mommer, the guy behind common-lisp.net, is sick of it:

There is a larguish problem with common-lisp.net. That problem simply is that its main admin and otherwise responsible guy (that is, me), has simply had more than enough of it. I just do not want to do this any longer. I enjoyed it for a long time but that time has been over for a while.

I don't think that things are going well with common-lisp.net as they are. The projects page is abandoned. We are still running debian woody. This sort of thing happens because I do not have the time, the expertise, or simply the energy to do better, and because there is no real infrastructure for sharing responsibilities. A project like this should have one, but I don't have the energy nor the time of building one.


Perhaps someone else might want to take over, which means taking over completely...

I have volunteered to take over the administration of common-lisp.net project approvals and hardware. Migration will take place sometime late November but I'll make appropriate announcements before then and hopefully there should be very little downtime of the code repositories.
