Fork me on GitHub

After listening to this interview with Elana Hashman on packaging Leiningen, I've contacted her about creating a clojure Debian package. She's already put together an ITP (Intent To Package) here: and invited me to take a stab! Mac users can brew install clojure. Why? Because that's the platform Alex Miller uses, as he plainly states in his "Dependency Heaven" talk. In light of recent discussions surrounding the contribution process to the Clojure language itself (and its documentation, etc.), I'm starting to re-evaluate the kind of stuff I'm spending my time on for stuff like this challenge.

I just listend to the same podcast, was really interesting. Big thanks to all that have put the work in.
