      OpenStack meets Lisp: cl-openstack-client

A month ago, a mail hit the OpenStack <http://openstack.org/> mailing
list entitled "The OpenStack Community Welcomes Developers in All
Programming Languages
<https://lists.launchpad.net/openstack/msg24349.html>". Julien Danjou
<http://julien.danjou.info/blog/> has interpreted that as a challenge
and in pure hacker spirit he brought Lisp into OpenStack. Welcome
cl-openstack-client <https://github.com/stackforge/cl-openstack-client>,
the OpenStack client library for Common Lisp <http://common-lisp.net/>!

a new mailing list openstack-i18n at list.openstack.org
