Okay. Thank you for the explanation. I just found it a bit strange that
a cl-* package does not contain an asd file, especially when one is
already provided by the upstream
( Interesting that the ASDF
package itself has no asd file!

Perhaps the maintainer(s) should consider including an asd file to avoid
surprises like this.
