I have a feeling that Quicklisp slowly fades away into an unmaintained state. While still being the CL library manager & the CL online package library.

I believe there is an incredible amount of manual work invovled to keep it barely going.

Should we try to reform and renovate #Quicklisp and move it to a point where it appears to be a modern package manager & repository like any other language offers?

I probably sound heretic. I just feel that Quicklisp is an unopened treasure trove and vital to #CommonLisp ’s adoption.

What do you think?
