evol - entrenched virtues of lisp / love reversed

evol aims to be a compatible and full-fledged replacement for the GNU Autotools[1] stack targeted at coping with the Autotools' shortcomings while not repeating the mistakes made and still being made at comparable build tool projects.

evol is completely written in Common Lisp and licensed under the GPLv3+[2]. Please see the file COPYING in the top-level directory of the distribution tarball or see the link at [2] if you didn't receive a copy along with this file.

Since distribution in binary form requires static linking of Common Lisp libraries, distribution must include the file CREDITS also found in mentioned top-level directory to respect copyright of the respective holders.

Alpha-Stage Warning

evol is still a moving target, i.e. subject to change in terms of its top-level API so please don't use it for any production work yet. However you are very welcome to test and contribute!


Please see file INSTALL.
