Ediware moving to github

I have been more or less the primary maintainer for the Hunchentoot web server written in Common Lisp for several years now. Its primary Author, Edi Weitz, has been doing Lispworks related work and release engineering, but he now intends to step down from that role, too.

In order to open up development and encourage hacking and extending Hunchentoot, we have decided to move the development from the aging BKNR Subversion repository to github. That will make it easier to fork new versions, integrate patches, discuss code changes and track issues.

Together with Hunchentoot, a bunch of other libraries written by Edi Weitz have been moved to the edicl organization on github. The list is not complete and currently consists of libraries that I have used or hacked in the past. Feel free to let us know if you'd like some other of Edi's libraries to be relocated.

Happy hacking!
