Click here to access Trac.
We are running Trac for projects who request it. It's a
fairly vanilla installation which resides in
/project/<project>/trac (on the filesystem)
and is writeable by the project administrator only. He/she may
choose to use
trac-admin as per the documentation
to add milestones, components, etc. It's accessible through the web
The first thing you'll want to do after having logged in to your Trac
instance is to go to Settings and add your email address and
name. This will make your username show up in the Assign-To dropdown
list for tickets.
Everyone with a common-lisp.net account has a Trac user and password,
it is stored in $HOME/trac-info.txt. Please see it for your username
Trac is configured such that anonymous users may not create or modify
the wiki (but may submit tickets) and authenticated users (ie. all
common-lisp.net users) can create or modify the wiki and submit tickets.
If you need to restrict this you can argue your case at
the clo-devel mailinglist or use
trac-admin to change
it for your project.
Notifications are automatically sent to the <project>-email@example.com
mailinglist and Reply-To is set to the <project>-firstname.lastname@example.org list.
If you want to change this you may change
to suit your needs.
"Programs must be written for people to read, and only incidentally for machines to execute."
"That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."
"One of the most important and fascinating of all computer languages is Lisp (standing for "List Processing"), which was invented by John McCarthy around the time Algol was invented."
"Lisp is a programmable programming language."
"Lisp isn't a language, it's a building material."
"Any sufficiently complicated C or Fortran program contains an ad hoc informally-specified bug-ridden slow implementation of half of Common Lisp."
"Lisp is worth learning for the profound enlightenment experience you will have when you finally get it; that experience will make you a better programmer for the rest of your days, even if you never actually use Lisp itself a lot."
"Lisp is a programmer amplifier."
"Common Lisp, a happy amalgam of the features of previous Lisps."
"Lisp doesn't look any deader than usual to me."
"SQL, Lisp, and Haskell are the only programming languages that I've seen where one spends more time thinking than typing."
"Don't worry about what anybody else is going to do. The best way to predict the future is to invent it."
"The greatest single programming language ever designed."
"I object to doing things that computers can do."
"Lisp is a language for doing what you've been told is impossible."
"Within a couple weeks of learning Lisp I found programming in any other language unbearably constraining."
"Programming in Lisp is like playing with the primordial forces of the universe. It feels like lightning between your fingertips. No other language even feels close."
"A Lisp programmer knows the value of everything, but the cost of nothing."
"Lisp is the most sophisticated programming language I know. It is literally decades ahead of the competition ... it is not possible (as far as I know) to actually use Lisp seriously before reaching the point of no return."
"[Lisp] has assisted a number of our most gifted fellow humans in thinking previously impossible thoughts."
"The limits of my language are the limits of my world."
