Fundraiser: ASDF Appreciation

What is ASDF

ASDF is Another System Definition Facility and is the defacto standard build system for Common Lisp libraries and applications. ASDF has grown to be a vital component of the Common Lisp ecosystem. It forms the backbone of Quicklisp, which provides over 1500 installable libraries.

Who is ASDF

For almost the past decade, the often thankless job of developing and maintaining this facility has fallen on the shoulders of a small set of volunteers, led by François-René Rideau (faré).

Doubling Incentive Extended through ELS 2019

In observance of the 12th European Lisp Symposium and the release of ASDF 3.3.3, the CLF has received approval from the sponsors to extend the donation doubling through the week of ELS (the week starting April 1 and ending April 8).
