Heow Eide-Goodman emailed the Lisp Summer of Code mailing list last week with a status report on the various projects. I've reformatted his message below (the summeroflisp-discuss archives are available only to subscribers, and actually I'm a subscriber and I still can't seem to log in).
Is there a specific end date for the Summer of code?
Is "practically complete"! Being hosted on Common-Lisp.net, Marco and Samantha are now creating the documentation [http://bioinformatics.nyu.edu/~marcoxa/work/cl-godb/index.html]
Rayiner and Luis are working hard and Luis has been making especially good progress.
From the mouth of Kai:
I wrote some Lisp code (using cl-ppcre and cl-yacc) to convert some LaTeX-like hypertext language to XHTML. I also started writing an Emacs mode for interaction with the new Axiom GUI code. Eventually it will support plots and TeX-rendering of formulas, but right now it doesn't do anything beyond offering basic access to the Axiom GUI back-end.
Tim is happy with Kai's progress and work.
John Clements does not have much to show as he's currently between houses. From what he's mentioned, he'll probably end up modifying the UI quite a bit and he expects to have something to show in the next iteration.
Eric Lavigne has been tearing up the ErLisp mailing list and working closely with it's creator Dirk Gerrits and mentor Faré.
They're sort of at a crossroads in regards to choosing which core features to add such as process-linking and error-handling, or work on issues that are most interesting to potential new Erlisp users.
Lots of good stuff going on and this is a good problem to have. :-)
William Bendick isn't going as quickly as he'd like, but should have a library good enough to make public and have people tear apart within a week or so.
I don't think I heard from Svein Ove Aas this week, but last report was that his stepper interface that works with SBCL has been completed and a patch submitted. Working on CLisp and MCL next.
Corey Sweeney wrote a checker for his first proposal for the connection interface. and started porting spgsql to my new proposal so people will be able to see it in action when they comment. Right now the connection part works fine, next comes the access part.
However he fears that the spgsql driver needs to be rewritten to make it portable to other schemes.
