Hi people

All details needed to create an importer should be available below.

Pierre asked off-list:
> Swedebugia, would you like to give it a shot?  I can help of course.

Yes :) I will look into it, this seems easier now that I already learned to handle git and branches and also studied the pypi- and npm-importers.

    Hi Zach

    Thank you! What a nice simple API (compared to what we deal with in
    other importers).

    This looks very good.

    Are the tarballs static or regenerated sometimes?
    Is the old tarballs for earlier releases available?

Tarballs are static and are never changed or deleted.

quicklisp.txt is updated periodically to point to new dist indexes. has a list of active dist versions.

    file-md5 content-sha1 is the two file hashes.

We strictly need sha256 because of the way the /gnu/store is implemented
    in Nix/Guix.
    Could you add that as an additional hash in the next release?

Look at digests.txt alongside releases.txt.

    Are all build time and run time dependencies?

Build time. Foreign libraries are not listed, sorry - and there are many that are required. I collect the data but do not currently publish it.
