Hi,


Is there any way to ask quicklisp to load a certain distribution? In my project, I would like to check in a quicklisp version number into the repository, so that future installations of my project by default use the same versions of the included packages.


I know about the install-dist mechanism, but that requires me to explicitly download packages. What I would like to do is to specify the version number and then have ql:quickload automatically prefer that version. Something like:


(let ((ql:*prefer-dist-version* "2019-02-17"))

  (ql:quickload :some-package))


Is there a built-in way to achieve this in quicklisp?


Thanks

Erik
