Generating the SBCL web pages:
Place the current release's NEWS file in this directory.
Install CL-PPCRE. (It's in clbuild.)
Make sure your environment is set up to use an 8-bit locale (UTF-8 or
ISO-8859-1 should work). On Solaris and BSD-derived systems, this can
be done with:
while on many Linux variants, you'll want:
Edit platform-support-platforms.lisp to update available versions.
If you have just bumped the SBCL version then you may need to update
the sbcl submodule with something like this:
(cd sbcl && git fetch && git checkout sbcl-x.y.z) && git commit -m "Update sbcl submodule to x.y.z" sbcl
Note that if you update the submodule but do not commit here then it
will be reset to the last committed version!
Then run "make". Note that GNU make is required.
Commit your changes to platform-support-platforms.lisp
Copy *.html and sbcl.css to the SBCL web page root. As of October
2008, this can only be done using SFTP, SCP, or rsync over SSH. The
following might work, assuming suitable permissions on the receiving
rsync -avP -e ssh -b *.html <user>,email@example.com:/home/groups/s/sb/sbcl/htdocs/
Assuming ./extract-sfnet-user is smart enough to figure out your
username, this may be done via "make upload-pages".
Don't forget to push when you're done!
