I sent the pdf of the ILC 2005 paper off last week, on the deadline day. Now I just need to register and reserve a rental car. Oh, and make the slides and practice the talk.

The gcl ansi-tests suite is close to done. I'm scanning back through the spec, filling in parts I missed. Compiler macros, various declarations. DEFINE-SETF-EXPANDER needs tests.

I've also started on a new Lisp testing project. It'll be located below the ansi-tests directory in the gcl tree, but it's not part of that test suite. I want to test that most undefined situations in the spec signal errors in safe code. The purpose is to make safe code truly safe (no buffer overflows or other potential security problems). The exceptional situations in the standard are just inadequate for this.
