For reference: CMUCL gets pushes as a binary+source with
Build-Depends == version uploaded every time.
So for a new version I upload a new source _and_ a new
binary package every time.
Now and again there are people opening bugs, but the real requirement is
that you can recompile the distribution using programs in the
distribution. As CMUCL version X can compile version X, just as
CCL version X can compile version X there is no problem.
SBCL version X can compile version Y so for that package
there is no problem (TM).
Except of course the tons of 'segfaults for me', 'uses too much
memory' bugs which gets opened.
Best regards and good luck, Peter
