Hi everyone,

I would like to create a (hopefully temporary) apt repository under 
/home/groups/pkg-common-lisp/htdocs for my CCL package, so people can try 
it out. This package is currently sitting at

This seems like a natural place for such a repository, though not the only 
possible place. I was thinking of using the subdirectory 
/home/groups/pkg-common-lisp/htdocs/apt/ or 
/home/groups/pkg-common-lisp/htdocs/debian/ for this repository. 'debian' 
is probably the more usual choice, but maybe 'apt' would be less ambiguous 
here. Does anyone have objections to this? If so, please suggest 
alternatives. Thanks.

Currently alioth does not have reprepro. Do you think the admins would 
install it if I asked? If so, what is the procedure? I asked on #alioth.

Please CC me on any reply. Thanks.
