No slime today, because I haven't been working on it#

No slime today, because I haven't been working on it. No slime on sourceforge, and no explanation for its continued missingness. No slime on savannah: they rejected the application because the cvs tarball didn't have the right number of copyright messages. Not that we could have added them after the project had been created, or anything. No, they definitely need to be in place at project creation time.

For the record, I'm not at all sure that the requirement to include a copy of the GPL is appropriate in this case. The cited reason is that the user may not have one already; however, we are talking about Emacs lisp here - slime would be pretty useless without Emacs, which package tends as a rule to come with a GPL copy of its own.

The good news is that I think I've fixed the longstanding cliki bug with page names that have % or . or + or similar exciting characters in them. No, don't go and test it, I haven't released the new version or upgraded any of the public sites yet.
