2.5.1 CLPM Abstract

The Common Lisp Project Manager (CLPM) is a new addition to the Common Lisp dependency management ecosystem. CLPM provides a superset of features pro- vided by the Quicklisp client, the current de facto project manager, while maintaining compatibility with both ASDF and the primary Quicklisp project distribution. These new features bring the Com- mon Lisp dependency management experience closer to what can be achieved in other programming languages without mandating a particular development workflow/environment and without sacrificing Common Lisp’s trademark interactive style of development.
