  I do think so, yes

  Jep that'd be the best way forward

  As you might have noticed, the common lisp team is severly lacking
manpower so if you want to help out we're happy to take your help. I
guess you can also get commit access to the team's alioth repositories
so you can put the work on ecl-doc into a git
repository. Unfortunately -- as much as I'd want -- I can't really
promise you to be available for questions / help / uploading.
