[cmucl-help] Git repo for cmucl

Cmucl is now officially moving to git.  The CVS repo will be turned off
soon, and, in fact, should no longer be used at all.  The repo will
still be available for historical reasons, but no new code should be
checked in to it.

We had planned on moving to git almost a year ago, but for various
reasons never got  around to it until now.

Additional information will be placed on cmucl's trac wiki, but for now,
you can view the repo using trac (coming soon to
http://trac.common-lisp.net/cmucl/browser) or directly at

For now you can clone the repo using

git clone git://common-lisp.net/projects/cmucl/cmucl.git src

or for developers

git clone ssh://<user>@common-lisp.net/var/git/projects/cmucl/cmucl.git src

There is a minor issue to be taken care of:  What to do with the RCS
keywords that are in all of the files.  I rather like seeing that
information when you describe something.  (Mostly to see when the file
was last modified.)
